A pan-South-West socio-political organisation under the aegis of Yoruba Council Worldwide, on Tuesday, called on former President Olusegun Obasanjo to guard his utterances and avoid setting Nigeria on fire.

The organisation described as “unfounded and false” the alarm Obasanjo raised against officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission in the build-up to the collation of the results of the presidential election.

The YCW alleged that Obasanjo aimed to “cause ethnic conflict that will inevitably nosedive into civil unrest as earlier postulated” by him in his letter dated February 27, 2023.

The socio-cultural organisation warned that, “any attempt to allow any unilateral cancellation by the chairman of INEC as proposed by Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and co-accomplices is a recipe for anarchy and full implosion that will take many years to repair.”

The President of the YCW, Oladotun Hassan, described Obasanjo’s outburst as “selfish, egocentric and deliberate attempt to viciously scuttle the ongoing smooth electoral process through his tainted partisan efforts to create a false impression against the use of the Bimodal Voters Accreditation System.”

His reaction sent to The PUNCH was titled, ‘Chief Olusegun Obasanjo’s false alarm over BVAS and cancellation of 2023 presidential election: A steer to implode anarchy in Nigeria’.

Hassan said, “His undemocratic stance on many fronts has further reduced his level of opinion to a mere beer parlour argument without no substance to hold and bind the nation together as a true democrat and respected elder statesman.
