No Other EndSARS Protest Is Allowed Under My Watch - Buhari

Edo 2020: Buhari Preaches Against Violence, Rigging

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday warned against violence and vote-manipulation in Saturday’s governorship election in Edo State.

The President warned electoral officials and security agents to be neutral while carrying out their duties.

He also warned political parties and politicians to behave responsibly as they go into the election.

Buhari, in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, said he is committed to bequeathing the culture of free and fair elections. He said, however, that, the activities of those on the field would go a long way to determine outcomes.

He said that: “I am passionately committed to free and fair elections, but my own commitment is not enough if other actors at ground zero refuse to abide by the rules.

“I want to see democratic standards in the country raised higher at every level, but these cannot be achieved when politicians resort to do or die methods to gain power by any means or machination.

“The do-or-die mentality to politics is a threat to free and fair elections because the actors are more focused on winning than caring about a fair outcome that reflects the Will of the people.”
