Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has spoken out in response to the recent Presidential and National Assembly elections.
Obasanjo said in an open letter to President Buhari that the President has promised to give Nigerians a free and fair election before leaving office and that he should not allow some people, particularly INEC staff, to sully his legacy.
The former President claimed that INEC officials were compromised during the elections because they did not use the Bimodal Voters Accreditation System (BVAS) or the Server purchased for the electronic transmission of election results.
Obasanjo pointed out that even though INEC chairman, Yakubu Mahmood, wants to claim to be ignorant of these fraudulent activities, he should not fold his hands and allow the corrupt actions of some of the commission’s staff to go on without correcting them.
He stated that if INEC chairman knows his hands are clean, he should save Nigeria from the looming disaster waiting to happen as a result of the “flawed” election.
He called on President Buhari to order the cancellation of any result that the credibility is in doubt and order a fresh election in such places where elections were disrupted for next Saturday, March 4th 2023.
