The All Progressives Grand Alliance has commended the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) for maintaining neutrality in most elections held under his watch.
The APGA National Coordinator, Media Warriors, Chinedu Obigwe stated this in a press briefing in Awka, Anambra State, on Monday.
He said, “President Buhari as a progressive-minded politician is not comfortable going back to the dark era of using presidential powers to rig elections in favour of an unpopular candidate.
“The President is only committed to ensuring that the November 6th governorship election is free and fair.
What he wants is for the Anambra electorate to be allowed to elect their next Governor with their votes.
“Instead of buying the state of emergency idea, the President is giving Governor Obiano the needed cooperation as the Chief Security Officer of the State to tackle the insecurity in this state.
“If the President maintains his current neutral stand without succumbing to undue pressure to use the federal might to rig the Anambra November 6 poll, he has succeeded in giving Nigerians hope that the 2023 general election will be free and fair.”
