The former Vice-President advised all the involved politicians to reign in their proxies and abide by the law, as he complains of the country being on the edge due the brinkmanship of the people charged with the role of leadership further stoking the already tense atmosphere of the country.

He admonishes that those involved in the elections should please maintain the status quo and allow the people of Edo State choose who they want to govern them while portending the rule of law. 

Atiku Abubakar tweeted;

Nigeria has been on edge due to the brinkmanship of those charged with democratic leadership. We must, as a nation, not escalate the already tense atmosphere in our polity.
What is happening in Edo State is a threat to constitutional order nationwide, and I strongly urge belligerent forces to reign in their proxies and abide by the rule of law. As I have previously said, without the rule of law, there will be no rule at all.
The current goings-on portends grave danger, not only to law and order in that state but to the coming Edo elections.
The people of Edo state should be allowed to choose who they wish to govern them, and that choice is to be made on September 19, 2020. Pending then, everything legally possible must be done to preserve the status quo.
