The number one citizen of the federal republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu on Tuesday, stood on his long time affirmative that the 2023 general election will be free, fair and credible.
The president spoke while hosting the West African Elders Forum Pre-Election Mediation Mission, led by former Sierra Leonean President, Dr Ernest Bai Koroma, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“Thank you for accepting to do this service for our sub-region,” the President told his guests, citing off-season elections held in Anambra, Ekiti and Osun States, as a pointer to the fact that the Federal Government would allow people to choose leaders they want.”
“That right is guaranteed,” President Buhari affirmed. We are settling down, and making progress. People should vote for whomever they want, in whatever party.
“We shall not allow anyone to use money and thugs to intimidate the people.
“Nigerians know better now, they are wiser, and know that it is better to dialogue than to carry weapons. Elections are even more difficult to rig now.”
