Buhari delivered his promise of a free, fair and credible election — FG tells foreign media

President Muhammadu Buhari delivered on his promise to ensure free, fair and credible elections during the recent general elections, the Federal Government has said.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lia Mohammed, disclosed this while speaking with some international media organisations in Washington DC, USA on Monday, April 3.

He said in fulfilment of the President’s pledge to restore sanity into the electoral process, he resolved that he would not confer special advantage on any political party, including the ruling Sll Progressives Congress, APC, during the election.

He said during the elections, the President ensured that nobody used the security agencies to rig the election in his favour but created a level-playing ground for the elections to take place.

According to him, “A proof of this resolution is that the President’s party lost the presidential election in Katsina, his home state.

Equally, the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, lost in his state, Lagos, while the chairman of the Party, Abdulahi Adamu, lost in Nasarawa State to the Labour Party.

The Director-General of the Campaign Organisation of our party also lost to PDP in Plateau State.

Nothing gives these elections more credence than those facts because there was no rigging in states where our big wigs come from.”
