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.
