2023 Election: Oluwo Calls On Politicians To Maintain Nigeri

The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, has called on aggrieved politicians to ensure that Nigeria remained a united nation.

Oba Akanbi who made this call during a press conference on Tuesday in Iwo also affirmed his trust in Nigeria and her distinctive leaders mostly President Muhammad Buhari was undoubted.

The press conference is coming a day after former President Olusegun Obasanjo in a letter called for caution and rectification of the ongoing collation of the February 25, 2023, presidential and national assembly elections.

“This general election, in my own reasonable assessment, is the best legacy of all achievements of his excellency, Buhari.

"This is the greatest electoral shocker in history. Prof. Mahmud Yakub is credible and wise for composing himself in the face of provocation.

“In 2019, Buhari polled 15,191,847 votes, winning in 19 of the states while his main challenger, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party scored 10,782, 007.

"The improvement of INEC and her regimented voting procedures could contribute to the accredited voters.

"He has convinced us that Nigeria will be a reference point of democratic ethos. All leakages to inflate the election results were blocked.

"Students of history and objective observers are enjoined to mark and credit our democratic growth.

"I am sure the founder fathers who earlier sacrificed for this democracy will be happy in their graves. Most political gladiators were suffocated by INEC fairness, credibility and uprightness.

"One other peculiar characteristic of the 2023 presidential election is, it has further cemented the unity of Nigeria.

"The three leading presidential candidates got convincing votes from northern and southern Nigeria. That has spoken to the minds of nationalists who cherish our nation.

“Atiku, Tinubu and Obi are loved in Southern and Northern Nigeria.

"The reasonable, patriotic Nigerians, statesmen, stakeholders, traditional rulers, religious leaders, journalists, opinion leaders, and international observers are charged to defend the electoral excellency that gives hope to the common man to become a federal legislator.

"I’m not saying the election is perfect but it’s the best ever. The elders benefitting from violence should allow us to grow. We are moving and improving.

"No rational mind should call for war with the objectivity and fairness of INEC.

“Those who have ruled should juxtapose the election they supervised with this electoral legacy of President Muhammad Buhari.

“Buhari, you are a super president on this. Ladies and gentlemen, every loyal, chauvinistic passionate, faithful and patriotic Nigerian should tell the truth, encourage the electoral umpires (INEC), commend the security operatives and commend the process that gives a challenging electoral victory to our democracy.

“I appeal to party men with grievances to approach the court of law. Obeyance to law and order defines who we are. If you can’t keep the unity of Nigeria, we beg you to keep shut.

"We won’t allow anyone to destroy Nigeria's democracy constructed by the sweat of our founding fathers. God bless Nigeria God bless Nigerians.”
