I Won’t Interfere In 2023 Elections, Buhari Assures Nigerians

By Adadainfo

President Muhammadu Buhari Tuesday in Abuja said he will not interfere with 2023 general election in favour of his party, All Progressives Congress (APC).
He sad his government will bequeath strong political institutions through non-interference in elections, citing outcome of polls in Ekiti, Anambra and Osun states as indicators.

The president, who received members of Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF) led by its chairman and g overnor of Kebbi State, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, at the State House, in a statement by presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, noted that non-interference in elections gives credence to the political process, ensures participation and inclusiveness, and shows that the governing party respects the electorate.

President Buhari said APC, under his leadership, will continue to respect Nigerians by ensuring that their votes count and the people’s voice matter in choosing political leaders at different levels.

“I want Nigerians to know that we respect them, and for us to show that we will allow them to vote who they want.

“We all witnessed what happened in Anambra, Ekiti and Osun states. What happened in those states give me a lot of hope that we are succeeding.’’

For the 2023 elections, President Buhari said the government will also ensure that Nigerians don’t get intimidated, or humiliated by those in positions, or the more privileged.

“We will not allow anyone to use personal resources or their influence to intimidate other Nigerians. We will not allow intimidations materially, morally or physically. This is the kind of leadership that can emerge and consolidate our nation.

“In six months, Nigerians will appreciate the government of APC that we are sincere and we respect them,’’ he added.

President Buhari urged the party’s political leaders to intensity efforts in “thinking, meeting and strategising for the 2023 elections.’’
