Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has predicted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, will win the March 28 presidential election, adding that there would never be an annulment as being feared.
Speaking in Abeokuta, Ogun state on Wednesday during a meeting with a group, Concerned Citizens of Nigeria, Obasanjo declared that he has confidence in Buhari because he was a trained military officer.
The group had expressed concern over what they called a “series of dangerous political miscalculations currently going on under Jonathan administration”. they expressed fears that what happened to Moshood Kashimawo Abiola in 1993 under the Ibrahim Babangida military adminstation could repeat itself.
The group’s leader said:“We have come to express our deep concern over series of dangerous political miscalculations currently going on under Jonathan administration.
“We are afraid that crisis is seriously looming and it is like another June 12 crisis is on the way and it may be very tragic for the country. We want you to as a matter of urgency intervene into the matter before it is too late sir,” the group opined.
Responding, Obasanjo allayed their fears, saying that the 2015 election will never be like the June 1993 election.
His words: “You need not to worry about anything. There can never be any June 12 annulment again. Buhari is not Abiola, he is a trained and highly intelligent soldier.
“Oyegun is not Anenih, Osinbajo is not Kingibe. Jega is not Nwosu, Jonathan is not IBB and this time around, Obasanjo will not support any interim government.
“Obasanjo will rather support a free, fair and credible election.”
