Social media has been agog all of Sunday evening, after former president Olusegun Obasanjo released a letter castigating President Muhammadu Buhari.
The former president made some points against Buhari, in his recent open letter entitled ‘Points for concern and action’ – which was made available to journalists in Abeokuta on Sunday.
However, some supporters of Buhari have taken to social media to call out the ex president over his claims that Buhari plans to rig the forthcoming elections.
According to many of them, Obasanjo has no moral justification to speak about election rigging in Nigeria, because his track record in that regard, are still very fresh in the minds of many.
The reminded Obasanjo of appointing Maurice Iwo, Abel Guobadia, who they accused of conducting the most rigged election, in the history of election in the country.
Okadigbo who replaced him in November 1999 without the blessing of Obasanjo, was also unceremoniously removed with the assistance of Nigerian police in August 2000.
Please don't get me started on the rigging during Abel Guobadia and Maurice Iwu periods of OBJ. It was a travesty.

It has to be the defn of irony when the man who gave us Maurice Iwu (Prof of result writing) and conducted what's accepted as the most rigged elections in our history is the one lecturing us on how to conduct credible elections. Someone shd tell him this is no longer his "Watch".
