Nigeria Election: Atiku should reject results, form a govt, order civil disobedience-Fani Kayode

Former Aviation Minister and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Femi Fani-Kayode has called on the opposition party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to reject the ongoing presidential election result being announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Fani-Kayode, who described the election result as a charade, said Atiku should reject results being announced and give the Federal Government “an ultimatum to declare the authentic results.”

He added that failure to declare supposed authentic results, the PDP candidate should “form a government and order civil disobedience throughout the nation.”

He stated this in a post on his Twitter handle in response to the ongoing announcement of the presidential election in Abuja.

He wrote: “The election was a charade! @atiku should now brace up to defend the choice of millions of Nigerians who risked their lives on Saturday, defied tyranny and oppression and spoke through the ballot!

“He must reject the results and give the FG an ultimatum to declare the authentic results, failure of which he will form a Govt. and order civil disobedience throughout the nation!

“If this charade is allowed to stand, the country is finished! Then the authentic results collated by PDP from the 119,000 PUs must be released to the public and the int. community!”

President Muhammadu Buhari of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) government is leading in the results so far announced.

However, the PDP had rejected the result alleging manipulation of the exercise by INEC and the ruling APC in favour of Buhari.

Fani-Kayode’s call may just be a manifestation of allegations the APC has made concerning the opposition’s plans to cause chaos.

APC Presidential Campaign Council spokesman, Festus Keyamo had alleged that the PDP intends to create a situation in the country similar to what presently obtains in Venezuela.

He had claimed that intelligence reports had shown that the PDP plans to create a parallel govt, and sponsor pockets of protests around the country, to create political crisis, and use this as an excuse to call on the international community to interfere.
