EDO POLL: BUHARI HAS
FULFILLED HIS PROMISE FOR
FREE, FAIR ELECTION~
AMAECHI

Minister of Transportation, Mr Chibuike Amaechi, says
outcome of Edo poll is a fulfillment of President Muhammadu Buhari`s promise of ensuring free, fair and credible elections in the country. He stated this at the Rivers South-East
Senatorial District rally of the All Progressives
Congress (APC) on Thursday at Ngo in Andoni
Local Government Area of the state.


Represented by Dr Dakuku Peterside, Director-
General, Nigerian Maritime Administration
and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Amaechi said
that after the March 19 rerun elections in
Rivers, he reminded Buhari of his promise to
conduct free and fair elections in the country.


“I went to the president because there were
more guns in hands of criminals than
Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) in hands of
peaceful people during the March 19
legislative rerun elections.


“The president assured me that to signpost the
fact that never again will electorate be held
hostage by gunmen, watch out for Edo
governorship election.


“If we have free, fair and credible election in
Edo, then you take it that same will happen in
Rivers, Buhari assured me,” he said. Amaechi therefore said that with the peaceful
conduct of the Edo election, Buhari had fulfilled his promise and Rivers people would
reap from that pledge.

“In a peaceful atmosphere during elections, no
South-South state will vote for opposition
party. So, Rivers people will vote to be in the
mainstream in the pending rerun elections. “I want to assure Rivers people that there will
be free and fair election and APC will come
out victorious,” he said.

According to Amaechi, APC has the best
candidates to represent Rivers effectively in
the National and State assemblies. “With APC members in the state assembly, the
legislature will have its colour; Rivers people
will have strong voice in the National
Assembly,” he said. (NAN)
