Obasanjo demands cancellation of presidential polls

It appears Obasanjo was not satisfied with the conduct of the 2023 presidential polls held on Saturday, February 25, and called for cancellation.

The former president, on Monday, February 27, said the election lacked integrity and validity.

In his statement titled “2023 Nigeria Presidential Election: An Appeal For Caution and Rectification”, he urged the chairman of INEC, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, to take the bull by the horn and save Nigeria from catastrophe.

The ex-president alleged that INEC officials stationed nationwide had been compromised, especially with the hiccups encountered in the transmission of results.
