Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, has vowed to uphold the rule of law if elected into power.
The PDP flagbearer made the vow at his campaign rally in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital on Monday.
Addressing a mammoth crowd at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt, the former vice president also promised to unify the country and urged Nigerians to vote out the APC and any leader that seeks to divide the country.
Taking a swipe at the Buhari administration’s run-ins with the judiciary and the National Assembly, Abubakar promised to uphold the rule of law.
“I will protect the Constitution,” he said. “I will protect the separation of powers. I will not interfere with the National Assembly because I believe in checks and balances. As you see me so, I will not interfere with the Judiciary because it is part and parcel of our checks and balances. I will uphold the rule of law. I will not allow the rule of law to be trampled by anybody.”

Atiku, who accused President Muhammadu Buhari of pitting Nigerians against each other, said Nigerians are tired of violence.
“We are not going to allow anybody to knock our heads (together) and make us fight,” he said.
Urging the people of the state to vote for him, Abubakar also promised to restructure Nigeria and ensure the progress and development of the country if elected.
Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike told thousands gathered at the rally that the choice before them and Nigerians was one between light and darkness and advised the people to vote for the PDP.
