Obasanjo is Nigeria’s greatest election rigger – Tinubu

A former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, on Saturday attacked former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Mr Tinubu, a national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), said the former president was Nigeria’s greatest “election rigger”.

The former Lagos governor spoke Saturday afternoon at the presidential rally of the ruling APC which held in Lagos.

Mr Tinubu said the former president conducted one of Nigeria’s most flawed elections, which prompted late President Umaru Yar’adua to admit that he was rigged into power after he was sworn in.

“When he was asked, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua admitted that the election which brought him into office was rigged,” Mr Tinubu told a large crowd at the rally in Lagos on Saturday.

“Who conducted that election?” he asked, rhetorically. Then the enthusiastic crowd screamed: “Obasanjo!”
