“Did President Buhari face Jammeh and suggested him to just accept defeat the way in which he (Buhari) conceded defeat in 2003, 2007 and 2011 when violence was instigated and several other individuals, together with the members of the Nationwide Youth Service Corps had been killed?
“How can Buhari, who has destroyed the legacy of free, truthful and credible election in Nigeria, be the one to prevail on another person to stick to democratic ideas?”
