Former president Olusegun Obasanjo who voted in Abeokuta has called the 2015 general elections success as another first in the history of Nigeria. According to Obasanjo, ‘we should be proud of ourselves, we have done for Nigeria, we have done it for West Africa, for Africa and we can lift up our heads and say yes, this is another first in the history of Nigeria.’
Obasanjo said further that the ‘whole of Nigeria should be proud of their performance at this election. That there were apprehensions and maybe, understandably so, because of those beating the drums of war. God took control. ‘He also said those who expected a big bang did not get a whimper. The former president was particularly happy with the performance of INEC. He believes that we are gradually maturing in our democracy and democratic process.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
