Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has alleged that the results of last Saturday’s presidential election have been doctored and manipulated.
The ex-president, who called on President Muhammadu Buhari to demand a review of the results collation process, said this through a statement he personally signed on Monday.
He alleged that most of the results that are “brought outside BVAS and Server are not true reflection of the will of Nigerians.” Mr Obasanjo is one of the major backers of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi
In his Monday statement, Mr Obasanjo hailed Mr Buhari for his resolve to ensure a legacy of free, fair, transparent and credible elections. He, however, appealed to President Buhari to save the country from the looming d@nger that might hit the country as a result of the election.
His statement read in part, “Your Excellency, President Buhari Muhammadu, tension is building up and please let all elections that do not pass the credibility and transparency test be cancelled and be brought back with areas where elections were disrupted for next Saturday, March 4, 2023, and BVAS and Server officials be changed.
To know which stations or polling units were manipulated, let a Committee of INEC staff and representatives of the four major political parties with the Chairman of Nigerian Bar Association look into what must be done to have hitch-free elections next Saturday. Mr. President, may your plan and hope for leaving a legacy of free, fair, transparent and credible election be realised. Mr. President, please don’t let anybody say to you that it does not matter or it is the problem of INEC. On no account should you be seen as part of the collusion or compromise. When the die is cast, it will be your problem as the Chief Executive of the nation.
The Chairman of INEC may sneak out of the country or go back to his ivory tower. Your Excellency, thank you for hearing me out.“
