The immediate past Min­ister of State for De­fence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, has accused the main opposition party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) of planning to rig the forthcoming general elec­tions in the country.

Obanikoro, who was speaking in Lagos at the launching of Indepen­dent Campaign Group said Nigerians must not allow it to happen.

He said President Goodluck Jonathan deserved a sec­ond term, saying not giv­ing him a second term ticket will be an injustice.

According to him, For­mer Presidents Shehu Shagari and Olusegun Obasanjo were given sec­ond term in office, say­ing President Jonathan deserved a second term because, according to him, “what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.”

Listing the achieve­ments of Jonathan, Obanikoro said, “We have a President under whom for the first time now we have a running railway. People can move from Lagos to the North, from Port Harcourt to the East, from East to the North for the first time in a long time. Yet we have not done anything.

“Mr. President has re­duced drastically our de­pendant on rice importa­tion, our import bill has gone down by 40 per cent, yet the president has not done anything.

With the falling price of oil and the import bill way up there imag­ines where we would have been as a nation. In Lagos State, they have killed public schools at all levels. The President has created 12 universities”, Obanikoro said.
