Why I Decided Not To Speak On 2019 Presidential Election Result – Obasanjo by ijustdey: 9:56pm On Mar 19
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has given reasons why he would not comment on the outcome of the February 23 presidential election.

Mr Obasanjo backed the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, in the election that was won by President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Mr Buhari as the winner with 15,191,847 votes. Mr Abubakar garnered 11,262,978 votes.


Mr Abubakar has challenged the result in court. PREMIUM TIMES On Monday reported how he gathered a team of lawyers at the Court of Appeal, who are currently working on the processes of filing the petition.

Mr Obasanjo said speaking about the election would be ”subjudice.”



The former president spoke on Tuesday at the Shehu Musa Yar’adua Centre Abuja, at the launch of a book written by Abdullahi Shehu, titled ”Election in Nigeria: The Long Road To Democracy.”

The event attracted the presence of dignitaries, including a former Head of State, Yakubu Gowon; human right activist, Femi Falana; a former deputy president of the Senate, Ibrahim Mantu; Chido Onumah, author of ‘We Are All Biafrans”, among many others.

”I will not dabble into the details of what I call current aspect of Prof Shehu’s book because since the emphasis was on the national election, particularly the presidential election, and the presidential election is now taken to court,” Mr Obasanjo said.

”I think talking about it would become subjudicive, because it has been taken to court,” he added.

Mr Obasanjo, however, spoke on Mr Shehu’s book.



”The book discusses the election and electoral processes in Nigeria including why there must be a free fair transparent and credible election as predictive autumn of the country.

”It reviews the main factors that led to the defeat of the PDP in 2015, and how the APC mismanaged the victory. The main thrust of the book is a comparative analysis of the APC Next Level and the PDP ” Let’s Get Nigeria Working Again”, he added.

Mr Obasanjo said the author had done justice in reviewing the bedrock of a democratic government.

”I think from the review, you would see that the author had done justice in what he set out to achieve

”In the introduction in which election is the bedrock of a democratic government, all modern democracy and old elections, not all elections are truly democratic. The measure of a democratic election is that it is transparent fair, credible and acceptable

”The problem is who determines these outcomes in the election? And that is where the concerns about a sustainable democracy arises and sustainable democracy, if an election is fundamental and basic to democracy and good governance.”

The former president further reviewed the part highlighted in the book, as ”Election Integrity.”

He described an election without integrity as a ”farce”

”Then we go to the other part and very important part in which Prof Shehu highlighted very much in this book, and that is election integrity. Without integrity, any election is a farce.

”In this regard, an election can futher enhance democracy, security, human right and freedom,” he said.

So this old man who felt he can always appoint leaders for this country can also cower behind the word "subjudice"

From his own personal experience, Can Obasanjo tell us he doesn't know the outcome of this kind of tribunal cases . Karma is a bîtch !! undecided

Interesting. The mighty have fallen

Any book centered on election must portray OBJ as the grandpa of electoral fraud in Nigeria. He has every opportunity of giving us a good constitution to govern electoral body but he chooses to ignor it just for selfish reasons

Siliencer! PMB's victory really dealt with Obj's ego and ground standing. The greatest shock remains with the man who bought the PDP ticket, went to America, spent heavily t buy votes, manipulated many states in his favour and still failed the election grin

Baba used Judiciary as an excuse not to support Atiku on his bid to contest the outcome of the result in court, a smart man and a scam. Baba na business man wey one sell his new book without any election controversy !!! grin

Your silence has been as a result of utter shock Baba. The moment APC were declared winner, you knew your relevance to politics just finally got buried.
How can you call someone the biggest thief u have ever known just now and the next minute you ask us to vote for him. That was one of the mistakes you made.
Yes political history in Nigeria will always make reference to you, no doubt. You should be contented with that.
