Nigeria’s former Chief of Army Staff and Chief of Defence Staff, General Alani Akinrinade has taken a swipe at the ex-president president Olusegun Obasanjo over his call for the cancellation of the 2023 presidential and National Assembly election.
In a statement sent to media personnels monitored by CUTY BELL. The retired Army general said that the statement by former Obasanjo over the recently concluded elections must be condemned in the strongest terms by democracy-loving Nigerians and those who care about the unity of this country.
He said Obasanjo’s statement came at a time when the Independent National Electoral Commission was still busy with the conduct and release of the election results is both unfortunate and a glaring and calculative attempt to game the system.
Akinrinade said without any shred of evidence, a former president was challenging the integrity of national elections and calling a seating President to truncate it midway.
