Avert looming bloodshed, 2023 presidential poll is rejected by many, Okoli urges Buhari

By Okechukwu Onuegbu


A celebrated author and President Muhammadu Buhari's personal biographer, Mr Enuma Okoli, has appealed to the president to address the challenges surrounding the just concluded general elections to avert possible crisis that could lead bloodbath.

Okoli, who disclosed this in a press conference in Awka, Anambra State capital, observed that the outcome of the election was largely rejected, with a section of the country, expressing dissatisfaction in the presidential election.

"Please avert any looming bloodshed. If left unattended what we may witness may make 1966-7 a child’s play. Nigeria must not scatter and it ever (God forbid) may it not be traceable to your era. 

"You had personally told me how you and your colleagues fought to maintain the unity of Nigeria. Sir, these years of suffering should not go down the drains because of a single election. Your Excellency, I am calling your attention because of my fears for our dear country, Nigeria. Tension is rapidly building up and sir, you need to act, and fast too. 

"I’m sure events following this election are going the way you never ever intended. Please call an urgent meeting of the stakeholders immediately and arrest the situation. Many Nigerians have rejected this election. Please do something about it sir," he noted.

Okoli, while describing Buhari as a peaceful man, said his advice to the president was because he (Buhari) took time to speak to him on the sacrifices he made to ensure Nigeria remained one, during the civil war.
