APC Responds to Obasanjo, Says Buhari Not Plotting to Rig Election

The All Progressive Congress (APC) has responded to former President Olusegun Obasanjo for accusing President Muhammadu Buhari of allegedly plotting to rig the coming presidential election.

Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC National Publicity Secretary, speaking at an interactive session with newsmen in Abuja, said the party has no reason to do so.

He said the allegation of plot to rig the election was a mere imagination of the former president whom he alleged was afraid of his past, okay gathered.

In his words, Issa-Onilu said: “We can understand where the former president is coming from; his past is haunting him.”

“2003 and 2007 elections were nothing to write home about, those happened under former President Obasanjo. We all know how the elections went. So, for us in the APC, votes will count.”

He also added that President Buhari has no reason to rig the election, having promised Nigerians that he would ensure the votes were free and fair.

Issa-Onilu further advised the former president to readjust himself to the reality of what he described as an imminent defeat.

“We are going to have a free, credible and fair election,” he insisted. “We have no reasons to want to rig election; our achievements speak for us.”

“Former President Obasanjo should adjust himself to the reality of imminent defeat that is staring him in the face.”
