The All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign council has slammed former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who called for the cancellation of allegedly manipulated results from Saturday’s presidential election.
Earlier on Monday, Obasanjo urged President Muhammadu Buhari to take urgent steps to address the tensions that followed allegations of discrepancies in election results.
He also demanded that elections be cancelled and redone in areas found to have been affected by compromise.
However, reacting to the development in a statement, the spokesperson of the APC campaign council, Dele Alake, accused Obasanjo of “hypocrisy” and “mischief”.

He further claimed that “what Obasanjo is subtly calling for in his nefarious statement is a coup against democracy and the constitution”.
Alake added that “luckily, President Buhari is made of finer and more principled democratic stuff. He will not allow Obasanjo to lure him into tainting his democratic credentials in this regard.”
