‘Don’t Set Nigeria On Fire’, Obasanjo Rejects Manual Transmission Of Results

Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has urged with Mahmood Yakubu, the head of the Independent National Election Commission (INEC), to correct the errors made in the most recent elections in order to escape serious peril.

Obasanjo personally signed a letter on Monday that contained the request.

The presidential and national assembly elections were held in Nigeria on Saturday, drawing close to 80 million voters. Two days after the voting, the results of the presidential and National Assembly elections, which many praised as historic, are now trickling in from various parts of the country.

If his hands are clean, let me make an appeal to the INEC Chairman to shield Nigeria from the approaching danger and catastrophe, stated Obasanjo.

The 85-year-old statesman pleaded with the population to have patience and declared his belief in the efficient working of the system.

"Nigerian patriots, kindly exercise patience while the error is fixed. I have a strong conviction that no one will currently tamper with Nigeria's future or fortune.

"Long live Nigeria in the dream of a brighter tomorrow, in tranquility, safety, and stability."

He made it quite apparent that the election authorities should disregard any results given using methods other than BVAS and Server. Elections must be postponed by the Chairman four days before to the election in order to fix the errors of the preceding two days. No outcome will be acceptable without BVAS, he continued, and none will be without uploading through a server.
