Former Niger-Delta militant leader, Alhaji Asari Dokubo, has said the 2015 general elections were the most rigged in Nigeria.
He spoke on Sunday in Owerri, where he graced the Biafra Day celebration.
He said figures clearly showed differnet levels of manipulation.
“The elections were not free and fair. Also, the stage was set to manipulate the elections”, he said.
Dokubo blamed the activities of Boko Haram insurgents on leaders from the Northern section of the country, mostly the Northern Muslims.
He recalled that the elites in the zone vowed to make the polity unstable and ungovernable for ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan.
He, however, blamed Jonathan’s loss on the use of card readers.
“Our brother, Goodluck Jonathan refused to listen to us. To him, the life of any Nigerian was not worth his election or ambition.
“For us, that was an abdication of his duties as President because we were also involved in the elections and we wanted a free and fair elections”, Dokubo said.
He wondered why Jonathan, who could not vote even after four card readers were used, did not stop the election.
“That was the time Dr. Jonathan ought to have taken action and stopped the fraud that INEC called an election.
“He did not do it. It was in the middle of a crucial match that the referee, Professor Attahiru Jega , who is from the same place with Muhammadu Buhari, issued a statement that if card readers cannot confirm your finger prints, then you can go on and vote”.
