Former Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba has disclosed that the police forced the then President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to concede defeat and congratulate the then president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress.
Suleiman claimed that he was under pressure from the stalwarts of the PDP to compromise the 2015 elections.
“Thank God that in our own case, we forced those who lost elections to accept the results. The Nigeria Police forced those who lost elections to accept the outcome”
“I said the Nigeria Police, I didn’t say Suleiman Abba. It was the action of the police that made them have a change of mind and accept the results. The heroes of that election should have been the police,” he said in an exclusive interview with Daily Trust.
Jonathan was praised for conceding defeat and congratulating Buhari before the final result of the 2015 presidential elections was announced.
