BUHARI BRAGS: ANAMBRA, EKITI, OSUN ELECTIONS PROOF OF MY COMMITMENT TO CREDIBLE POLLS

President Muhammadu Buhari Friday in Abuja declared that the off-season elections in Anambra, Ekiti and Osun States have confirmed his Administration’s irreversible commitment to credible and violence-free polls in the country.

Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity) Femi Adesina, disclosed this in a statement Friday.

Receiving a delegation from Nasarawa State, the President urged the electorate to vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the next general elections to ensure continuity in the polity, and stability in the country and the West African region.

The President told the high-powered delegation led by the State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, that the Electoral Act, signed by him earlier this year, was an attestation of the fulfilment of the administration’s determination and commitment to the tenets of the rule of law.    

‘‘On the issues of credible, free and fair elections in the country, I have always re-assured my listeners both at home and abroad, that my personal desire and indeed the priority of this administration is to bequeath to our nation an irreversible political process that continues to be both democratic and acceptable to the people.

‘‘My desire for our nation is that the 2023 elections should clearly mark the commencement of the institutional strength of our electoral body in conducting acceptable, credible and violence-free elections.

‘‘The forthcoming general elections will provide us with the opportunity to convince the electorate of the need for continuity to enable our party to consolidate on our achievements in the last 7 years.

‘‘The Government and people of Nasarawa State, as usual, have a great role to play in returning our party to governance in the 2023 elections, in order to create a path for greater socio-economic growth and development. This is not only important for Nigeria alone but also for the West African Sub-Region.’’

Noting that Nasarawa remains very dear to his heart, President Buhari described the State as the symbol of hope and determination in collective efforts to entrench democracy in Nigeria.
