Snatch ballot papers at the expense of your life- Buhari


Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari Monday has said that anyone who attempt to snatch ballot paper during election will do so at the expense of their lives.

“I want to warn anyone who thinks he has enough influence in his locality who tries to lead thugs to snatch ballot boxes or disturb the voting system will do so at the expense of his own life,” Buhari said during the ruling All Progressives Congress caucus meeting in Abuja on Monday.

Buhari, who had earlier expressed disappointment in commission over the postponement of the general election,s said there will no be room for election riggers to carry out their acts.


The President, who is also seeking re-election, said Nigerians believed in INEC after the Commission assured of “complete readiness for the elections.”

The president, however, said he was not afraid of losing the election despite the election postponement and that he was optimistic has the support of Nigerians.

“I am not afraid, I went around 36 states to campaign. I think I have gotten enough support across the country,” Buhari said.
