Nigerian newspaper Vanguard reports that President Muhammadu Buhari, in Ondo state asked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to stop making noise about plans to rig elections when their mentor, former president Olusegun Obasanjo had always rigged elections on the platform of the party.

Nigerian newspaper The Guardian reports that the national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has described Obasanjo as a beneficiary of rigged elections. At the party’s presidential rally in Akure, the Ondo state capital, Tinubu alleged that the PDP under Obasanjo, rigged elections in its favour in 2003 and 2007.
Also, Nigerian newspaper The Punch reports that the governor of Kaduna state, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, has described as “most irresponsible” the comments of the United States of America, the United Kingdom and the European Union on President Muhammadu Buhari’s suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, who is facing non-declaration of assets charges.
He said the foreign countries had no right to lecture Nigerians how to run their country.
Nigerian newspaper The Nation reports that Nigerians have been urged to remove the cancer of corruption from Nigeria by renewing the mandate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for another four years.
The counsel was given by APC leaders during the party’s campaign rallies in Ekiti and Ondo states.
