lagos—Lagos Central senatorial candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Adesunbo Onitiri has cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, of the need not to meddle with the last Saturday’s governorship supplementary elections in six states in the interest of Nigeria.
The states are Bauchi, Adamawa, Kano, Plateau, Benue and Rivers.
Onitiri, in a statement, yesterday, said the ruling party should not use the Osun template to rig elections in those states as it might cause violence.
“I wish to implore all patriotic Nigerians and lovers of democracy, including the international community to prevail on Buhari to let the votes of the people count for once. We cannot afford another civil war in this country.
According to Onitiri, Nigeria is presently sitting on a time bomb. Any attempt to further rig the elections May set the country on wild fire that may consume all of us.
“Nigeria is greater than any individual or office holder. We must always bear this in mind. INEC should maintain neutrality in this election and keep the little credibility that remains,” he said.
