Troop out, elect best hands on Saturday, Buhari tells Nigerians
President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerians to troop out en masse on Saturday to elect the best hands as governors and members of state Houses of Assembly.
In his message to Nigerians on the forthcoming elections, President Buhari assured that the security agencies would be on hand to protect voters and ensure that the electoral process is not undermined.
“Let’s make the gubernatorial polls much better than the Presidential elections, which local and international observers have adjudged to be free and fair,” he said.
Condoling families of those who lost their lives or sustained injuries as a result of accidents or violence during the Presidential and National elections, President Buhari said the onus was on the electorate to turn out in large numbers to exercise their civic rights.
“With the presidential poll behind us, let us not become complacent and fail to vote in the gubernatorial polls. The forthcoming elections are as important for good governance as that of the presidency and National Assembly.
“Indeed, governance at the state level is closer to the people and should touch more lives directly. That is why it is vital for us to participate in the choice of who governs us at the state level.
“I, therefore, urge you to troop out massively on Saturday to elect your governors and state lawmakers.
“As a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), I recommend those standing on the party platform, as we are guided by progressive ideals and we will not disappoint you.
