    The Democracy Coalition has accused the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration of clamping down on former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar over his interest to contest for president in 2019.

    The coalition in a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Mr. Michael Williams, described the terminating of contracts of the Wazirin Adamawa with the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) as witch-hunting.

    “The attention of Democracy Coalition has been drawn to a petty and
    witch-hunting policy of the Buhari administration which resulted in
    the termination of the boat pilotage monitoring and supervision
    contract Atiku’s company Intels had with the Nigerian Port Authority
    (NPA)  because of Atiku’s interest in contesting the 2019 Presidential
    Election against the rumoured reelection bid of the ailing President.

    “There is no doubt that the move is part of the wider conspiracy to
    attack and cripple the business interest of the former Vice President
    who is also the biggest employer of labour in Nigeria,” it stated.

    It explained that the termination of the contract is an open admittance by the
    failed Buhari government that Atiku’s Presidency is inevitable come
    2019.

    “Anybody fooling himself with an overdose of cocaine syrup and is
    thinking that Atiku will go broke and back out of the 2019 Presidential race is only suffering from the placebo effect of the drug.

    “With the $25 billion contract scandal in the NNPC and with the massive
    corrupt practices going on in the failed Buhari Government, the ailing
    President Buhari has shown that his much trumpeted fight against
    corruption by this draconian and clueless regime is nothing but a
    hoax.

    “With the latest clampdown on one of the multinational businesses in
    Nigeria, the failed Buhari government has demonstrated once again that
    he hates domestic and foreign investments in the country. What this
    action means is that under Buhari, investments are not safe in
    Nigeria.

    “Donald Trump ran for President against Barrack Obama’s anointed
    candidate in 2016 but Obama did not go against his business interest,” it pointed out.

    “Hence, the latest move against Atiku by President Buhari has really
    emboldened Nigerians to rally round Atiku and support him to become
    their President in 2019.

    “Therefore, we are asking the ailing President Buhari to start writing
    his hand-over note because Atiku’s Inauguration on May 29, 2019 as
    Nigeria’s new President has become inevitable,” it predicted.
