The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress of violating the constitution and the Electoral Act 2010, by their alleged deployment of state resources and apparatuses for the 2019 presidential campaign.

Atiku, in a statement on Thursday by his media adviser, Paul Ibe, said the alleged action was contrary to the claims of Buhari and the APC of not abusing state resources.

He said the National Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, had in December 2018 warned incumbent office holders against using state resources for campaigns, or deploying same against opponents.

Atiku, however, noted that the Buhari administration and the APC had allegedly been illegally using state resources to their advantages for the election.

He said, “We wish to remind President Buhari and the APC that the use of state videos released by the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture is illegal under the Electoral Act 2010 as amended. .
