The Association of Nigerian Scholars in the Diaspora (ANSD)  challenged former President Olusegun Obasanjo to provide evidence on his reported claims of plots to rig the elections.

The association also expressed disappointment at the postponement of the presidential and National Assembly elections five hours before balloting began last Saturday by the electoral umpire. The scholars said the postponement had caused severe hardships to many Nigerian voters and candidates, especially those who traveled down to exercise their franchise.

A statement jointly signed by Prof. Bitrus Paul Gwamna, president and Prof. Pita Ogaba Agbese Secretary-General of the association, yesterday called on Nigerians to reject the alleged plot by former Obasanjo to discredit the forthcoming elections

The scholars affirmed that Nigerians deserve a better leader like President Muhammadu Buhari, who have laid a better foundation for the next level.

Obasanjo has already condemned the elections as  rigged in favor of President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC). He has made this condemnation without a scintilla of evidence.

“Obasanjo has been actively campaigning on behalf of Atiku Abubakar, one of the leading presidential candidates. Also, the way Obasanjo is campaigning for  Atiku creates the impression that it is Obasanjo himself who is the candidate of the PDP.
