Elections will be free, fair – Buhari reassures

President Muhammadu Buhari says he is all out for free, fair and credible elections starting on February 16.

Garba Shehu, the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, said he (Mr Buhari) gave the assurance at a meeting with traditional rulers at the secretariat complexes of the Councils of Traditional Rulers in Yenagoa, Bayelsa, and Port Harcourt, Rivers, on Tuesday.

Mr Buhari said: “I assure you that I’m all out for free, fair and credible elections. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) knows my stand on this.

“Nigerians are assured of free and fair elections. Under this leadership, nobody will be allowed to intimidate other citizens.

“Nobody will be allowed to snatch ballot boxes and run with them. I will make sure that the votes count.’’

He commended the introduction of the Permanent Voters Card (PVC) and Card Reader, and urged the nation to embrace the technology, arguing that without it, the 16 years of misrule by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would not have been brought to an end.
