Muhammadu Buhari answering questions from journalist at the Airport

Presidential candidate of the APC, Muhammadu Buhari, has called on his party’s supporters to shun violence during and after the elections.

Mr. Buhari made the call on Tuesday in Bauchi at the North East Zonal Presidential Campaign Rally.

“I call on all the APC supporters in the zone to make sure that they remain peaceful on Election Day and refuse any intimidation to cause violence.

“You should make sure you have your permanent voter cards and vote for those you want to be your leaders,” he added.

The presidential candidate said he made the call because some people did not want the election to hold and were looking for any reason to stop it.

Also speaking at the rally, Gov Kashim Shettima of Borno urged the supporters to remain united and peaceful and vote massively for APC candidates in all the states within the zone.

Other speakers that included Gov Ibrahim Geidam of Yobe and gubernatorial candidates from all the states within the zone.

The rally attracted many party leaders from the zone including former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

He promised that he would work towards the success of the party in all elections.

    Good from Buhari. We need to do more. The LGAs should also be spreading the word.

    The clarion call of Imam Buhari on his supporters to withholds violence until after the election does not do any good. He knows that they are already wound up waiting to pour into the streets to do violence immediately after the results are announced. He should rather call on the strong men among them to come down to Daura to hold him tight until the shock wears out.

    This kind of shock is called – the agony of defeat.
