Give Jonathan benefit of doubt – Abdusalami

Ex-Head of State, Abdulsalami Abubakar

Former Head of State, Gen. Abdusalami Abubakar, on Tuesday urged Nigerians to give President Goodluck Jonathan the benefit of doubt on his promise that general elections will hold as re-scheduled.

Mr. Abubakar made the call while fielding questions from newsmen in Kano.

The former Head of State was in Kano to inaugurate the Kano Informatics Institute, Kura.

He said Mr. Jonathan had in the recent Presidential Media Chat promised to allow the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct the polls on the new dates.

“As our President, let us give him benefit of doubt and accept what he said,’’ Mr. Abubakar said.

He, however, urged INEC to ensure the conduct of free, fair and acceptable elections for the sustenance of the country’s democracy.

“I do hope INEC officials will conduct free, fair and credible elections in the country,” he said.

On his recent visits to President Jonathan and, Gen Muhammadu Buhari (APC presidential candidate), Abubakar said the visits were private.
