Nigerians continue to express their views after former President Chief Olusegun Obasanjo called for the cancellation of the February 25 election. Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, who chairs the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights, and Legal Matters, has also commented on Obasanjo's statement.
Bamidele described Obasanjo's comments as unnecessary and suggested that the former president was upset because the election's results might not favor his preferred candidate, Peter Gregory Obi.
Senator Bamidele went on to mention that the same Obasanjo who endorsed Peter Obi previously lost in his polling unit in Abeokuta. He stated that Obasanjo was feeling nervous about the election's outcome, which might not be in favor of his endorsed candidate, and therefore, he is a poor sport.
In summary, Senator Bamidele has criticized Obasanjo's call for the election's cancellation and suggested that the former president is unhappy because his preferred candidate may not win. He also pointed out that Obasanjo had previously lost in his polling unit, despite endorsing a candidate.
