INEC, Police Must Be Ready For Elections- Obasanjo


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday while speaking
at a public enlightenment programme on the electoral process, organised by the
Organisation of Tadhamunul Muslimeen and the Ogun State chapter of The Muslim
Congress, held at the Olusegun Obasanjo presidential library,  warned that Nigeria could not afford to bungle
the 2015 general elections because the international community was watching the
“The elections are crucial and the international community
is watching us. We should not disappoint them, by ensuring that the elections
are free and fair.

“This election is for progress and development of this great
country and should be devoid of sentiments, like religion, ethnic and nepotism.
“This election should be a unity election for all of us,” he
He also noted that all eyes were on INEC and Police and they
have to ensure they carry out their duties rightly.
“We must not make the mistake of allowing the international
community to make jest of us; as such, those we want to beg are the Independent
National Electoral Commission, who had just told us here on how the process
would go, to assure us that it shall be well.
“You must be fully prepared. You must be up and doing. No
excuses. You know all the terrain very well; there should be no delay and late
arrival of voting materials.
“Where you are going to use boat to ferry on the water you
know it, where it is going to be bicycle, you know it. So, there should be no
unnecessary delay.
“A situation where somebody at Eggua will be phoning at 11am
that they are still expecting materials will be unacceptable. A situation where
the police will be telling us no fuel to move will be unacceptable,” Obasanjo
