A source at the meeting disclosed that Atiku “warned that tensions are building up in the land.”

NPC team included Cardinal John Onaiyekan, Bishop Kukah and Rev. Fr Atta Barkindo.

They listed the following as issues they had with the Presidential polls:

*Deployment of the military was unconstitutional and in breach of Supreme Court judgement. 

*That resultantly, a lot of malpractices between the INEC officers, the ruling party and the military took place to undermine the votes/voters of the PDP. 

*That there was collaboration between INEC and FG to undermine the sanctity of the votes of the people. 

*That this is the worst election in 20 years. No improvement from 2015. 

It was learnt that Gen. Abdusalam and his team pleaded with the PDP flag bearer to avoid anything that could jeopardise the nation’s peaceful co-existence.
