President Buhari calls for fairness ahead of Kogi and Bayelsa State polls


President Muhammadu Buhari has called for fairness and transparency ahead of Saturday’s governorship polls in Kogi and Bayelsa States, according to a State House statement.

In Kogi, a repeat election will also be held in Kogi-West senatorial district.

In a statement signed by presidential media aide, Garba Shehu, President Muhammadu Buhari made a strong demand for exemplary conduct of non-partisanship on the part of electoral officers and law enforcement agencies in the two states.

The President said in all democratic elections, there were bound to be winners and losers and the elections in Bayelsa and Kogi will not be different.

He called on all candidates to be ready to accept the outcomes and follow due process of the law in seeking redress if they were not convinced with the results.
