A former Political Adviser to ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, Akin Osuntokun, in this interview with FRIDAY OLOKOR, says President Muhammadu Buhari will be more vindictive if he is re-elected. Excerpts:
On Saturday, Nigeria will go to the polls once again to elect a president. What are your fears about the elections?
My fear is the incumbent President(Muhammadu Buhari) and his associates. They will be desperate and panicky. The most significant revelation in that respect is the statement by Kaduna State Governor, (Ahmad Nasir el-Rufai) about the international community. That is a very volatile statement and what it implies is very grievous. They are not preparing for the other outcome. The more the option of losing gets real, the more panicky and desperate they get. It looks like an element of going for broke. When you put yourself in a position in which you are prepared to become a pariah in the international community, that is an indication of desperation and a desperate person is a dangerous person.
