FG Warns Obasanjo not to Truncate Electoral Process

Ahead of the final release of the results of the Presidential Election, the Federal Government has

warned former President Olusegun Obasanjo not to truncate the poll with an inciting, self-serving, and provocative letter.
It accused the ex-President of a “calculated attempt to undermine the electoral process.”
It asked Obasanjo and other complainants to allow the legal course on electoral disputes instead of threatening fire and conjuring apocalypse.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, made the government’s position known against the backdrop of Obasanjo’s call for the cancelation of the presidential and National Assembly elections.
Mohammed, in a statement in Abuja, said Obasanjo was trying to incite violence.
The statement said: “What the former President cunningly framed as an ‘appeal for caution and rectification’ is nothing but a calculated attempt to undermine the electoral process and a willful incitement to violence.”
The Minister expressed shock and disbelief that a former President could” throw around unverified claims and amplify wild allegations picked up from the street against the electoral process.”
