Former Military President, General Ibrahim Babangida (Rtd), has urged the PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar to let sleeping dogs lie and work with Buhari so as so to move the country forward and sustain democracy.
He however saluted the doggedness of Atiku and the fact that he was able to get massive support all across the country.
According to Buhari: “I was not surprised that even though he lost the most exotic position of the land, his doggedness and pattern of support cut across ethnic, religious and regional lines that earned him the second position of the last Presidential election.

“I call on the former Vice–President Atiku Abubakar to close ranks and work with the winner of the election in an objective and constructive manner so that democracy will continue to thrive in our country at this crucial period of renaissance.
“I urged him also to endeavour and prevail on his admirers to eschew bitterness and violence. They must be prevailed upon to understand that politics is a game in which there must be only one winner.
“I pray that the Almighty Allah will continue to guide our democratic steps for peace and progress in our country.”
