In a statement, the Secretary, National Caretaker Committee of the party, Senator John Akpanudoedehe describing it as a big win for the nation’s electioneering processes and democracy.
Senator Akpanudoedehe Since said since 2015 when the President Buhari-led APC government came into power, our commitment and support for constitutionally-permitted innovations that would improve the transparency and credibility of Nigeria’s electioneering processes and internal democracy, had not been in doubt.
From legal backing given to election management bodies to review election results declared under duress, provisions for people with disabilities and special needs, electronic transmission of election results among other key provisions, current and coming generations will fondly remember President Buhari as the courageous leader who institutionalised credible elections and internal democracy in Nigeria.
