The All Progressives Congress, APC , has reacted to recent bombshell dropped by former president Olusegun Obasanjo in his latest open letter against President Muhammadu Buhari and his government.
Obasanjo in a letter entitled ‘points for concern and action’, accused Buhari of planning to rig the forthcoming elections, trashed VP Yemi Osinbajo’s TraderMoni programme. Amina Zakari’s appointment as INEC commissioner, towing the dictatorial line of former military head, Sani Abacha amongst others.
During an interactive session with reporters in Abuja on Sunday, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Lanre Issa-Onilu debunked such allegations.
He noted that his party has no plan yo rig the forthcoming elections, adding that Obasanjo speaks from a haunted past.
‘We 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.”
The APC national secretary also stated that Buhari is going to conduct free, fair and credible elections, as they have no reason to rig, as alleged by Obasanjo.
“‘We are going to have a free, credible and fair election.” 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.”
