A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Femi Fani-Kayode, has criticised former President Olusegun Obasanjo for calling for the cancellation of Saturday’s election.
Fani-Kayode said Obasanjo has plunged into the ring of fire by opting for anarchy.
Obasanjo had called on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to cancel the presidential and National Assembly elections in disputed areas.
He said the election was disrupted in many areas and “tension is building up” over the outcome of the election.
The elder statesman also alleged that INEC officials had been compromised by the manual transmission of results which he said had been manipulated and doctored.
Reacting to Obasanjo’s comment, the former Aviation Minister said Obasanjo had chosen the path of “lawlessness and anarchy.”
He tweeted: “After declaring for Obi, OBJ became an interested party & lost the right to act as an independent statesman. He has plunged into the ring of fire & has chosen the path of lawlessness & anarchy.
“By attempting to scuttle democracy he has wiped away the good he has done in the past.”
