Miyetti Allah Demands Obasanjo's Arrest

The All Progressive Congress (APC) has given it unreserved responses to former president Olusegun Obasanjo over his criticism of the federal government and President Muhammadu Buhari.

The APC National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, while addressing journalists on Sunday evening, said former President Obasanjo’s mood had determine the directions of his regime, government, and as such not suppressed by his rant.

He said: “When you are used to a particular thing, that means something you know how to do very well. For eight years of President Obasanjo, all the elections he held, in fact his government policies were determined by whatever mood he finds himself and all decisions of government were brought under his wings, and all that he did in those eight years are what is hunting him.

“Obasanjo can not imagine that it is possible for a government to allow INEC statutory independence that it has. We have had 93 elections since APC came to power and we are sure that all those elections were conducted without any interference from this government.

“In fact, if there is anything you want to credit this government with, it is the fact that institutions are allowed to fulfill their mandate without anybody’s interference. So, we can understand where the former President is coming from, his past is haunting him.

Onilu said that the APC-led federal government will not toil the path former President Obasanjo followed while in government as regards the conduct of elections, as he insisted that the Buhari government will conduct a free and fair election that must count.

“The 2003 and 2007 elections were nothing to write home about and those elections happened under President Obasanjo. So, for us in APC, votes must count. We are going to have a free, fair and credible election. We have no reason to want to rig elections because our achievements speak for us.

“So, President Obasanjo should adjust to the reality of imminent defeat that is staring him in the face. He has carried himself about as the dispenser of our destinies and God is showing him clearly that he has just only been lucky and the favour God has done for him, he has now considered them as things that come from him.”
