The African Action Congress,(AAC) has berated former President Olusegun Obasanjo over the latter’s call for the suspension of the ongoing collation of presidential election results.
A statement made available to Franktalknow signed by National Publicity Secretary, African Action Congress, Femi Adeyeye on Tuesday said that the former President has no credibility to talk about fraudulent elections.
AAC, while reacting to Obasanjo’s statement where he (Obasanjo) condemned the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over the conduct of the Saturday presidential and National Assembly elections, said that Obasanjo organised most fraudulent elections while in office as a president for eight years.

According to the statement, “It is also important to state that Nigerians must be wary of the sudden activism of General Olusegun Obasanjo. He laid the foundation of rigging in the country, with his “do or die” elections and “garrison politics”.
“This is someone who superintended the most fraudulent elections in Nigeria’s history that even the supposed winner of that election, the Late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, had to disavow it at his inauguration and set up the Uwais Electoral Reform Panel.
” Let it be on record that as a party of justice, we would not support any illegality, even when it’s done against our contenders, and we shall also resist any form of extra-normal activity as a ruling class “solution” to the crisis at hand. We are calling on the ruling class to shelve their plans to constitute an interim government, as that would be their gain in this imbroglio. We strongly oppose the constitution of an interim government, and we shall mobilize Nigerians to resist such a plan. We are warning again!
” Conclusively, we call on INEC to follow the law and its own guidelines and are calling for the cancellation of results not uploaded, collated, and read from the server, in accordance with the Electoral Act and Guidelines. Elections should be reconducted in areas ridden with vote buying, intimidation, violence, technical issues with BVAS, and other malpractices stated by parties and independent monitoring bodies.”
Obasanjo had in a statement on Monday berated INEC over the conduct of the elections, pointing out several reported violence and irregularities recorded during the elections across the country and called for the cancellation of the elections in some parts of the country.
