The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has asked the International Observers that will monitor the forthcoming general elections to observe the elections and go home as Nigerians would not entertain unlawful interference during or after the polls.
Tinubu also said that the APC will teach the presidential candidate of the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar a lesson on Saturday.
He also took a swipe at former President Olusegun Obasanjo over his criticism of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, describing him as the nation’s biggest election rigger.
The chairman stated this on Saturday at the APC presidential rally held at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere in Lagos.
His words: “I want to sympathise with our friends, our foreign observers. You are truly welcome. Observe what you need to observe, write your report in peace and go home.
“This is our democracy. America is still questioning its own democracy. We are watching CNN, Trump and Russia, China. Interference in the largest Africa democracy is what we are saying.
“The G20 in 2007 asked President Umar Yar’Adua, what are you going to do with the election in Nigeria?
“He said, ‘The election that brought me in as the president is flawed and I will reform it’. Who conducted the election? Obasanjo, the greatest election rigger in this country. He is an expired meat. Put him in the shop or dump him in the dustbin, forget Obasanjo!”
Speaking on the APC presidential rally in Lagos, Tinubu said: “Lagos is sure, very sure for the APC. This is a broom revolution. You’ve heard our state chairman who had catalogued when Buhari came here to campaign four years ago, he did not make fluke promises. We saw the action.”
