President Muhammadu Buhari has said Nigerians are free to vote for any candidate of their choice in the forthcoming presidential election. He said he is not afraid going into the elections on Saturady.
President Buhari spoke at the All Progressives Congress, APC, emergency caucus meeting at the party’s secretariat, in Abuja on Monday.
Buhari said, “We are not going to be blamed of trying to rig the elections. I want Nigerians to be respected. Let them vote whoever they want across the parties. I am not afraid, I have gone to all 36 states and Abuja and I think I have enough support across the country.”
He urged all APC supporters to vote peacefully in the upcoming elections.
‘‘We have so much to do and I think we should again go back to our loyal, committed people in all constituencies. If anything happens we have nobody to blame.
‘‘We have to tell our constituencies that they have to be patient and act in a very responsible way by going peacefully to vote again, and they should depend on party representatives at each of the 176,000 polling units,’’ he said.
