Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has challenged the electorate on the need to honour their civic duty as voters by going to the polls on Saturday to vote for the government of their choice.
Buhari has stated this in a nationwide broadcast on Friday in Abuja.
He said: “Tomorrow is an encounter with history in which you, the people, shall affirm your collective belief in our national greatness and in our future.
“I ask that you embrace and hold on to the importance of the moment soon to be upon us.
“As citizens there is no greater duty than this and no greater honour. Tomorrow, I know you will once again make Nigeria proud of its people.
“Do not allow anyone to discourage you from the exercise of your rights as citizens and voters tomorrow (Saturday).
“No matter our political leanings, we all believe in Nigeria, in the noble principles for which it stands and in the values we strive for our beloved nation to uphold.
“All who are able, must vote so that we may better perfect this democracy and continue to build the greater nation we seek.’’
