2023: President Buhari Appeals To Politicians And Voters To Be Peaceful
We have worked incredibly hard since I took office to make sure that we leave a legacy of free, fair, credible, safe, and peaceful elections. We’ll keep acting impartially and letting the rule of law prevail over political expediency.
With the off-cycle elections in the states of Edo, Ondo, Anambra, Ekiti, and Osun, we have proven this.
We gave Nigerians the power to choose their own leaders.
In this government, we are dedicated to maintaining this legacy.
I am asking @inecnigeria, the security agencies and all other relevant institutions to be firm and courageous, and to abide by the laws and constitutional provisions in conducting the elections.
You are assured of this administration’s full and continuous support.
We must constantly improve our electoral process using technology and all the positive elements it brings, to consolidate the integrity of our elections.
I urge the candidates contesting these elections at all levels to respect the choice of voters and accept the result of the elections as announced by @inecnigeria, the agency empowered by law to do so.
Any aggrieved candidate should resort to the established judicial processes, and we must have the confidence to trust our legal systems.
