Politics Africa: Buhari promises Nigerians free and fair election


Buhari promises Nigerians free and fair election
The president of the federal republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians that he would make sure that he delivers election that is devoid of rigging come February 16th 2019.
The president gave this assurance during a live broadcast on Thursday and monitored, here is his Full speech
“ Fellow Citizens,
“On Saturday, February 16, 2019, you will, once again, be called upon to choose the leaders who will pilot the affairs of our great nation for the next four years. This is a constitutional right which should be freely exercised by all eligible voters.
                                                
2. I wish therefore to start by assuring all Nigerians that this Government will do its very best to ensure that the 2019 elections take place in a secure and peaceful atmosphere.
3. It was indeed such free, fair and peaceful elections that made it possible for our Government to emerge, despite the fact that we were contesting against a long-standing incumbent party.
4. And as your president and a fellow Nigerian, I ask that you come out and queue to fulfill this important obligation you have to yourselves and your fellow citizens – and to our common future.
5. Let me at this point, reaffirm the commitment of the Federal Government to the conduct of free and fair elections in a safe and peaceful atmosphere. Just yesterday, I signed the Peace Accord alongside 72 other presidential candidates.
