Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Sunday, stated that former Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris rigged elections in 2015 for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He disclosed that Idris was allegedly sent to Kano for that purpose ahead of the elections.
In a lengthy statement made available to DAILY POST by his media team on Sunday, Obasanjo warned the new IGP Adamu Mohammed to be on the side of the people.
The statement titled “Points of concern and action reads: “I personally commend the President for yielding to popular outcry to let the former Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Kpotun Idris, go when he is due as he had the track record and history of being assigned to rig elections for the incumbent. It was alleged that he was sent to Kano for that purpose in 2015.
“He was already deploying his Commissioners of Police on similar mission before his exit. We must all encourage the new Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to tread the path of professionalism, even-handedness, respect and new image for the Police.
“While Nigeria must appreciate Buhari for the little he has done and allow him to depart for home in peace if he allows free, fair, peaceful and credible elections, we must also tell ourselves that Nigeria deserves better at this point in time than what Buhari is capable of offering.
“History will note that he has been there. Nigeria now needs a man with better physical and mental soundness, with an active mind and intellect.
“Let me say again that Nigeria belongs to all Nigerians and exists for the benefit of all Nigerians and non-Nigerians who desire to live or do business in and with Nigeria.
“The attitude of “it is my turn and I can do what I like” with impunity will not last because Nigeria is created by God and it will outlive all evil machinations and designs against the overall interest of Nigeria.”
