President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday called on Nigerians to come out en’ masse to vote in the Governorship and States National Assembly polls, urging them to make Saturday’s elections better than that of February 23, 2019.  

In his address, the President said, “Let us make the gubernatorial polls much better than the presidential which local and international observers have adjudged to be free and fair”.

The President noted that the forthcoming elections are as important as the Presidential polls, hence, the need for a massive turn out of voters.

“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,” President Buhari stressed.

He added, “I, therefore, urge you to troop out massively on Saturday to elect your governors and state lawmakers”.

President Buhari also encouraged the voters to avoid all form of malpractice in the coming polls, promising that the safety of all the electorates is guaranteed.

“I assure that the security agencies will be on hand to protect voters and ensure that the process is not undermined in any way.”
