Former President Obasanjo Says Buhari Planning to Rig Election

Former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo has attacked President Muhammadu Buhari, accusing him of plotting to rig the coming elections. In an open letter, Obasanjo also alleged that the president was acting like former military dictator Sani Abacha. In reply, the ruling All Progressives Congress said that Obasanjo was haunted by what he himself did while in office. The presidential and National Assembly elections will be on February 16.
