FILE: President Muhammadu Buhari casting his vote

President Muhammadu Buhari voted at polling unit 003, Sarkin Yara A in Daura, Katsina State, and urged voters to vote for their preferred candidates even if politicians offered them money.

After casting his vote on Saturday, the president spoke briefly to reporters in both English and Hausa, saying his administration had been preaching against vote-buying and political monetisation and urging politicians to refrain from such practices.

“If they (politicians) still give you money, collect, but vote for your preferred candidates,” Buhari maintained.

He again thanked the electorate for trusting the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the Feb. 25 Presidential and National Assembly elections where the party’s candidate, Sen. Bola Tinubu, emerged winner.

The president, who cast his vote at about 9.55 a.m, refused to ‘openly’ display his ballot paper as he did during the Feb. 25 Presidential election.
