The assertion reads:

Our consideration has been drawn to a press assertion by former President Olusegun Obasanjo wherein he was nearly calling for a truncation of the continuing electoral course of and a cancellation of already carried out elections on the premise of frivolous, unfounded and baseless allegations by politicians who’re sore losers and haven’t any respect for democratic values.

Obasanjo repeated with out the slightest iota of proof rumours he had picked up that the Bimodal Voters Accreditation System had been compromised and that the outcomes of elections being introduced are fraudulent. It’s tragic {that a} former President who should be a statesman in comportment and speech will recklessly search to hazard and derail our democratic course of for completely egocentric, egoistic and malicious causes. He presents not a single credible piece of proof to show his laughable and ridiculous allegations in opposition to INEC and the credibility of the continuing course of.

After all, we’re all conscious that Obasanjo just isn’t an neutral and disinterested occasion so far as this election is anxious. On January 1, 2023, he had issued a characteristically prolonged epistle to Nigerians endorsing the candidacy of Mr Peter Obi and asking Nigerian youths to vote en masse for him. After all our response was that the previous President was entitled to his view and that the result of the elections would display if he had any electoral worth. As destiny would have it, Peter Obi was defeated even in Obasanjo’s personal polling unit in Abeokuta in Ogun State. However it’s now apparent that the one election Obasanjo will comply with being free, honest and credible is one which produces Obi as winner which is ridiculous.

The assertion reads additional:

Is Obasanjo additionally querying the result of the presidential elections in Lagos or Delta the place Obi gained? If the result in Lagos gained by Obi is free and credible, on what foundation is he querying the result of the elections elsewhere? That is pure mischief and sheer hypocrisy. Obasanjo desires President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene in an undemocratic method to truncate the continuing political course of simply the best way he did most shamelessness within the 2003 and 2007 elections extensively described because the worst in our political historical past. Fortunately, President Buhari is fabricated from finer and extra principled democratic stuff. He won’t permit Obasanjo to lure him into tainting his democratic credentials on this regard. We recall that in his final journey to the USA, President Joe Biden praised Buhari ‘s dedication to democratic values and rules. Obasanjo has no such document to be applauded. The world has not forgotten his fraudulent and undemocratic try at a 3rd time period agenda in violation of the letter and spirit of the Nigerian structure.

That is an election wherein ASIWAJU Tinubu, as an example, has misplaced in Lagos state in his South West area whereas Atiku and Obi have additionally gained elections exterior their very own regional bases. No true democrat should search an abortion of the method simply because he believes the elections should not going his method. What Obasanjo is subtly calling for in his nefarious assertion is a coup in opposition to democracy and the structure. He must be roundly condemned and severely ignored. The structure has stipulated processes for in search of redress in opposition to electoral malpractices prior to now and these have been examined a number of instances and used to redress electoral injustice the place such has been confirmed. Nigerians should reject Obasanjo’s doubtful and hypocritical recommendation and keep strictly and firmly on the trail of constitutionalism and democratic due course of.
