I Want To Leave Behind Legacy Of Free, Fair Elections In Nigeria – President Buhari 1

President Muhammadu Buhari has declared that he would want to be remembered as a leader who kept his word that elections in Nigeria must be free, fair and credible.

The president said while receiving Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State at his private residence in Daura, Katsina State, and it was made known in a statement issued by the president’s spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, on Monday.

President Buhari described the governorship and state assembly elections across the country as largely successful and commended Nigerians who heeded to his pre-election appeal to cast their votes peacefully. He said:

‘‘I have maintained a position that elections must be free and fair and people have the right to make their choices and vote their conscience.

“I am happy they understood the message and did just that.

‘‘Power is a public trust that belongs to the people. Power is not by strength or wisdom but by Providence.

“Elected persons must be fair and just. This is the legacy I want to leave behind. A leader must be fair and just. All leaders should strive to do that.’’

Masari, who was accompanied by officials of the All Progressives Congress (APC) party in the state, thanked the President and the party for the support which led to his decisive victory at the polls.

The governor pledged to work for the good of the people of the state in line with the vision of the Next Level government at the centre.
