President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, declared that the handover date of May 29 for the incoming administration is sacred.
According to the President, Nigerians value democracy and have demonstrated their affection for it, and they will protect it from any actual or imagined dangers.
Speaking to journalists in Abuja just after the Eid prayer, which marks the conclusion of Muslims’ 30-day Ramadan fast, President Buhari said democracy had a bright future as a form of government.
He said as he prepares to leave office in a little over a month, he feels satisfied and duly assured that Nigerians will defend the system against all threats.
President Buhari in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, was quoted as saying, “Nigerians appreciate the stability of democracy. The outcome of the elections, in which more than ten governors failed to make it to the senate sent a clear message that ordinary Nigerians know the power of their votes and how to use it.
“Nigerians cherish democracy. They have shown their love for it and will defend it against real or perceived threats. They will continue to vote one way or the other depending on their preferences.”
President Buhari assured that the May 29th hand over date remains sacrosanct.
“God willing, nothing will stop it,” he added.
