Buhari appeals to supporters to maintain peace

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, has once again appealed to all his supporters to maintain the peace during and after the general elections.

Mr. Buhari made the appeal Saturday while speaking with reporters at his residence in Daura, Katsina state after voting.

“Even before the first pact we have asked our supporters not to take weapons and attack anyone, we have made a commitment that our supporters do not become violent before and after the election,” he said.
He also said the APC is a disciplined party and will not tolerate indiscipline.

While expressing confidence that he would emerge victorious, Mr. Buhari said if elected, he will give priority to tackling insecurity, unemployment and corruption.

The former Head of state also expressed delight with the decision of INEC to conduct election in areas where it could not hold Saturday. He called on the commission to learn from the challenges faced today so as to have a smooth sail on Sunday and other elections.

He also said the hiccups faced in some states today should not becloud the entire election process.
“We have problems in some local governments in five states out of thirty six and perhaps twenty local governments out of seven hundred and seventy four.

“In any case what we are experiencing is not enough to tamper with the process, remember there was election in Afghanistan who are facing similar problems with us, Syria, who is presently in a war situation also had election, Pakistan also had elections, so why can’t we,” he said.

    Today’s victory is victory for democracy. it is victory for Nigeria. It has been a long tortuous road, but God has granted us the victory at last. We are grateful to God. We are grateful to all law abiding Nigerians who made this victory real. Lets remain calm. No violence. Lets not go overboard in our celebration. Work begin in earnest. The rebuilding of our nation starts soonest. All hands must be on deck. Every intellect, imagination, hands, and brain of all Nigeria will be needed in the difficult task ahead. God bless the federal Republic of Nigeria.

    I am very impressed with the process and how APC have been conducting themselves. I have always believed that Nigerians can liberate themselves from inept leadership by exercising their God given franchise–Vote.

    There is no doubt that election can only get better in Nigeria; eventually, good leaders will emerge if people ignore cynicism and vote every 4 years. This is the only way to bring Politicians back to the earth from their high horse. Election is a way of holding them accountable and deciding the path for the future.

    If PDP loose this election, it is a sign of good things for the country. If APC failed to perform with the mandate given, we will vote them out again in 4 years until we get it right. Leadership is about responsibility and Nigerians of all works of life yawn for good and purposeful leadership. We are sick of performance that is below par.

      FOR HOW LONG WILL YOU KEEP VOTING OUT. YOUR VOTE IS JUST 1 COUNT. THE PEOPLE OF NIGERIA, THE ILLITERATE MASSES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ORDEAL THAT WILL BEFALL THEM. IN AN ELECTION THAT IS TRIBALISED; WHERE NORTHERNERS ARE VOTING IN A NORTHERNER, AND SOUTHERNERS ARE VOTING IN A SOUTHERNER, HOW CAN A TRUE PURPOSEFUL AND GOOD LEADERSHIP EMERGE IN SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES? NO WONDER NIGERIA IS CLASSED AS THE MOST ILLITERATE COUNTRY IN THE WORLD, WITH MAJORITY FROM BOKO HARAM BEMOANED/PROMINENTLY EFFECTED STATES OF THE COUNTRY. IF YOU ASK ME WHAT IS ILLITERACY? I WILL SAY A PERSON WHO IS UNABLE TO READ AND WRITE. WHAT PART OF THE COUNTRY MAKE UP THE STATISTICS OF ILLITERACY IN THE COUNTRY? THIS SET OF PEOPLE CONSTITUTE BACKWARDNESS AND BOTTLENECK IN THE PROGRESS OF THE COUNTRY AND ARE NOTHING BUT BARBARIC, BUNCH OF NON ENTITIES, IN DARKNESS PLACES, SICK AND IN ALL SORT OF DISEASES AND LEPROSY. AND WHEN IT COMES TO ELECTIONS, THEY ARE THE MAJORITY. MAY GOD HELP THIS FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA.

        Your views are very myopic in nature, bigoted and stereotypical to say the least. Educate and enlighten yourself a little bit more before you make general statements. Where have you been and who and what do you know from said region to make a blanket statement like that. And what do you understand about leadership, for you to see that a smart individual knows it’s about a man’s character at play here. All these other sentiments have just been politicized to deceive the electorate just like you are doing now. we are talking about corruption, security, good leadership you are here talking regional and sectional politics, sickening. Abeg jor go and sit down somewhere if you no sabi wetin you dey talk. Some of us northerners are forward thinking don’t get it twisted, every region has its woes. Wawa kawai…uban ka ne yana da disease da leprosy. Olodo…

        You are entitled to your opinion. Given the trauma this nation has been through over the last 4 years, with inept leadership and massive corruption we’ve never seen before, the only choice we have is for us to exercise our right and vote for new leadership to move us forward.

        In the last 6 months, we have seen the ugly rhetorics of division, hatred et al, yet the people have decided to vote their conscience and move the nation in a new direction.

        Contrary to your assertion, the same Northerners you castigated voted for oga Jonah in 2011 and gave him a mandate to lead, but what did he do with it? He allowed Boko Haram to fester and destroy their community.
