President Muhammadu Buhari, has assured Nigerians that he will not allow political aspirants intimidate them with money and other gift items in order to woo their votes, come 2023.

Buhari stated this at the State House, when he received members of the Progressive Governors’ Forum PGF, led by its Chairman the Governor of Kebbi State, Atikur Bagudu.

President Buhari assured Nigerians that his government would ensure no political candidate will foist themselves in the their throats simply because of position and other privileges.

“We will not allow anyone to use personal resources or their influence to intimidate other Nigerians. We will not allow intimidations materially, morally or physically.”

“This is the kind of leadership that can emerge and consolidate our nation. In six months, Nigerians will appreciate the government of APC that we are sincere and we respect them,’’ he added.

 

According to him, interference in elections gives credence to the political processes, ensures participation, inclusiveness, and shows that the governing party respects the electorate.

He said, under his leadership, APC would continue to respect Nigerians by ensuring that their votes count and the people’s voice matter in choosing political leaders at different levels.

“I want Nigerians to know that we respect them, and for us to show that, we will allow them to vote who they want. We all witnessed what happened in Anambra, Ekiti and Osun States. What happened in those states gives me a lot of hope that we are succeeding.’’

The Chairman of the Forum, Governor Atiku Bagudu thanked the President for his leadership, guided by wisdom and foresight, affirming that the Nigerian economy had been growing, in spite of challenges.

“We want to congratulate you on the positive trajectory of the economy, with the 3.5 per cent growth in the second quarter, up from 3.1 per cent of the first quarter of this year. Infrastructure projects are ongoing in parts of the country, and the social intervention programme is expanding,’’ Bagudu stated.

The Governor said the growth trajectory had defied initial predictions of some multilateral institutions, affirming that the World Bank and others had acknowledged the resilience of the economy, and reviewed their positions.
