Read the full statement of President Buhari address to Nigerians ahead of Saturday’s governorship polls across the country.
President Buhari addressed Nigerians ahead of the second and final phase of the 2019 general elections which comes up on Saturday, March 9, with Nigerians voting for governors and members of Houses of Assembly in the states.
Read statement below;
Let me once again extend my condolences to the families of those who lost their lives or sustained injuries as a result of accidents or criminal violence during the elections.
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.
Indeed, governance at the state level is closer to us, and should touch our lives more directly. That is why it is vital for us to participate in the choice of who governs us at the state levels.
I, therefore, urge you to troop out massively on Saturday to elect your governors and state lawmakers.
