I Am Impressed By INEC’s Preparations For The Elections – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has noted that the ongoing preparations by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) towards the general election have really impressed him.
Garba Shehu, special adviser to the president on Media and Publicity, noted that Buhari made the remark while addressing a meeting with the European Union Observer Mission (EOM) to Nigeria, at the state house, Abuja.
Buhari said he was hopeful that the commission would deliver a good job, free of any hitch, adding that the INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu briefed the council of the state about the commission’s plans.
He further noted that the country had grown its electoral system and it is “getting better year after year”.
“I am happy and impressed with the briefing he gave. I hope that the confidence he exuded and the intellect he brought to bear on the report will be justified at the end of the day,” he said.
“Having participated in elections four times in the past, I would say that since 2015, technology has helped the credibility of our elections.”
Buhari said despite the different ethnic groups and religions, “patriotism demands that we identify the nation’s best interest and go with it”.
He said the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration has the “good sense” of identifying the national interest to include security, peace and stability, improved economy, jobs creation and the campaign against corruption.
He noted that the party is not wrong by going into the forthcoming elections with the same issues it enumerated in its campaigns in 2015.
The president thanked the delegation for taking interest in Nigeria’s elections and in the affairs of the nation.
