The All Progressive Congress (APC) has taken a swipe at former President Olusegun Obasanjo for accusing President Muhammadu Buhari of plotting to rig the approaching presidential election.
Speaking at an interactive session with newshounds in Abuja on Sunday, the APC National Publicity Secretary Lanre Issa-Onilu mentioned that the party has no reason to accomplish that.
He explained that the allegation of plot to rig the ballot turned into an insignificant creativeness of the former president whom he alleged changed into scared of his past.
Issa-Onilu stated, “We can recognize where the previous president is coming from; his past is haunting him.”
“2003 and 2007 elections had been nothing to write domestic about, those took place below former President Obasanjo. We all recognise how the elections went. So, for us inside the APC, votes will matter.”
The APC spokesman harassed that President Buhari has no motive to rig the election, having promised Nigerians that he could make sure the votes were unfastened and fair.
He brought that even as the President’s work might communicate for him on the ballot , it changed into during former President Obasanjo’s administration that manipulation of the electoral system changed into alleged a norm.
Issa-Onilu similarly cautioned the former president to readjust himself to the reality of what he described as an coming near near defeat.
“We are going to have a free, credible and truthful election,” he insisted. “We don’t have any motives to want to rig election; our achievements speak for us.”
“Former President Obasanjo have to modify himself to the fact of approaching defeat that is staring him inside the face.”
The APC spokesman made the feedback hours after former President Obasanjo accused President Buhari of planning to rig the election scheduled to maintain next month.
Obasanjo, who study out an open letter entitled “Point for Concern and Action” to reporters at his residence in Abeokuta, had also alleged that the nation turned into returning to the generation of past due General Sani Abacha.
He said President Buhari lacked the potential to provide Nigeria what it honestly deserved at this second.
