The Buhari Support Organization, BSO, on Monday, faulted former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo over his recent statements on the political developments in the country.
Obasannjo had in a statement he personally signed, said that those insinuating that PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s decision to head to court to challenge Buhari’s victory at the presidential election tribunal was an invitation to violence, were evil minds.
But, Enugu BSO, reacting through its Secretary, Barister Godwin Onwusi, who is also the Secretary of Zikist/Buharist Movement (ZBM) South East, said “For us in the BSO, the international community, patriots and eminent statesmen like His Excellency, Ibrahim Babangida and Olisa Agbakoba, SAN, who advised Atiku not to head to presidential election tribunal are better friends of Atiku than Obasanjo.
“They’re better friends of Atiku, for advising him not to waste his time and resources. The truism is that Buhari contrary to Facebook or social media online analysis, which the Atiku camp relied upon, won the election.
“Obasanjo should come to terms with reality, that Buhari has a uncommon treasure Vote-Bank of 12 million voters, whom since his first outing in 2003 presidential election had voted for him, and the voting repeated in 2007, 2011, 2015 and 2019. Apparently Obasanjo is unaware that majority of Buhari’s voters were not captured by social media and possibly is unaware that Buhari for the first time scored over 1 million in the South South and had 25% in Abia, Ebonyi and Imo states.”
On the allegations that the presidential election was tainted by irregularities, including vote buying and none use of the Card Reader, he said “without contempt of the presidential election tribunal, the reality is that recorded irregularities were not substantial enough to vitiate Buhari’s victory.
“Buhari is standing on the Aminu Kano tradition in the North, which he not only inherited, but epitomise. It is a tradition of integrity quotient and prudent management of public finance. Atiku is deficit on this tradition and the votes reflected.”
He appealled to all “those patriots and even bigots who wished to see Buhari’s back, to come terms to the truism that the 2019 presidential election had come and gone, therefore should as a matter of urgent national importance join hands with Mr President to move the country forward.”
