Former Minister of Aviation, and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) Femi Fani-Kayode, has criticized former President Olusegun Obasanjo over his comment on Saturday’s presidential election.
Obasanjo in his letter addressed to President Buhari asked for the cancellation of the elections in disputed areas.
Fani-Kayode said Obasanjo has plunged into the ring of fire by opting for anarchy.
Obasanjo had called on the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC) to cancel the presidential and National Assembly elections in disputed areas.
He said the election was disrupted in many areas and “tension is building up” over the outcome of the election.
The elder statesman also alleged that INEC officials had been compromised by the manual transmission of results which he said had been manipulated and doctored.
According to him, it is no secret that INEC officials at operational level have been allegedly compromised following the manual transmission of results which he alleged had been manipulated and doctored.
Obasanjo’s letter is coming barely few hours after the party agents staged a walkout.
Reacting to Obasanjo’s comment, the former Aviation Minister said Obasanjo had chosen the path of “lawlessness and anarchy.”
He tweeted: “After declaring for Obi, OBJ became an interested party & lost the right to act as an independent statesman. He has plunged into the ring of fire & has chosen the path of lawlessness & anarchy.
“By attempting to scuttle democracy he has wiped away the good he has done in the past.”
