Buhari Is Behaving Like Abacha, Plans To Rig 2019 Election – Obasanjo Raises Another Alarm

Nigeria’s former President Olusegun Obasanjo has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of plotting to rig the 2019 election. Obasanjo issued the statement at a Press Conference in Abeokuta earlier today also accusing Buhari of behaving like late Sani Abacha.

I am concerned as a democrat who believes that with faithful and diligent practice of democracy, we can get over most of our political problems and move steadfastly and surefootedly on the course of stability, unity of purpose, socio-economic growth and progress for all.

Democracy becomes a sham if elections are carried out by people who should be impartial and neutral umpires, but who show no integrity, acting with blatant partiality, duplicity and imbecility. For all democrats and those carrying out the process of elections, there must be the redline that must not be crossed in tactics and practices of democracy.
