The All Progressives Congress through her National Publicity Secretary, Malam Lanre Issa- Onilu as released a statement in response to former President Olusegun Obasanjo statement that president Buhari is planning to rig the 2019 general election.
According to Onilu, the former president is being haunted by his actions while he was still in office, especially with regards to the conduct of elections.
Read the full statement below;
“For eight years of Obasanjo in office, all the elections he held, in fact, government policies were determined by whatever mood he found himself.
“All the institutions of government were brought under his wings and what he did for those eight years is what is haunting him.
“ He cannot imagine that a government will allow INEC the statuary independence that it has.
“We have had 93 elections or more since APC came to power, and you can be sure that all those elections were conducted without government interference.
We can understand where the former president is coming from, his past is haunting him, he imagines that perhaps the way he did it is the same way we will do it.
