President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the electorates to go out en masse and vote in Saturday’s governorship and state assemblies elections, as governance at the state level is closer to the people which also touch everyone more directly.
Buhari, who made the call in a video message on Wednesday, said the second and final phase of the 2019 elections is as important as the Presidential election which held on February 23.
While extending his condolences to the families of those who lost their lives or sustained injuries as a result of accidents or criminal violence during the presidential elections which he won, Buhari said: “the onus is once again on qualified people to turn out in large numbers to exercise their civic rights.
“With the presidential poll behind us, let us not become complacent, and fail to vote in the gubernatorial poll.
“The forthcoming elections are as important for good governance as that of the presidency and the National Assembly.”
Buhari, therefore, urged them to troop out massively on Saturday to elect your governors and state lawmakers.
The president also noted that said as a member of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), he is recommending those standing on the platform of the party to Nigerian voters.
He said candidates of the APC are guided by progressive ideals, assuring that they will not disappoint Nigerians.
The president also implored citizens to comport themselves properly, as they turn out for the election.
