National leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has criticised President Muhammadu Buhari for directing security agents to deal ruthlessly with ballot box snatchers during the general elections.

Speaking at a PDP youth rally in Ilorin on Thursday, where about 10,000 decampees were received by the leaders of the party, Saraki said that a president who love his people would not have ordered soldiers to kill them.

He expressed confidence that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will emerge as the new Nigeria’s president on Saturday, pointing out that Nigerians support for the PDP’s presidential candidate across the length and breadth of the country is overwhelming.

The PDP leader, who said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government has no agenda for either Nigeria or its people, enjoined Nigerians, especially the youths to vote for Atiku in the Saturday presidential elections “to say goodbye to hunger and poverty in Nigeria.”
