In an excerpt of the National address by the then Military head of state General Ibrahim Babangida annulling the June 12 1993 Presidential election. IBB, despite acknowledging the election to be free and fair, still went ahead to annul it, read the excerpt below…

”It is true that the presidential election was generally seen to be free, fair and peaceful. However, there was in fact a huge array of electoral malpractice virtually in all states of the federation before the actual voting began. About 2.1 billion naira was spent by both presidential candidates. We have authenticated reports of electoral malpractice against party agents, NEC officials and the electorate, who were manipulated through offer and acceptance of money and other forms of inducements
The conduct of the election, the behavior of the candidates and post-election responses continued to elicit signals which the nation can only ignore at its peril… To proclaim and swear in a president who has encouraged a campaign of divide and rule amongst our various ethnic groups would have been detrimental to the survival of the third republic.”
