Elections’ll be influenced by people’s free will, not money —APC

the Deputy General (Coordination) of the All Progressives Congress’ Presidential Campaign Council, Waziri Bulama, has said money will play no role in influencing the 2019 general elections in Nigeria.

He said the election would be largely influenced by voters’ freewill to choose their leaders based on trust, integrity and performance in office, which he said were to the advantage of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Addressing journalists in Abuja, Bulama said Buhari had fulfilled promises he made and deserved a second term to consolidate achievements and secure the nation’s path to economic recovery.

He said the government had blocked loopholes and reduced wastes in government in order to save for the future, unlike the Peoples Democratic Party that mismanaged the economy for 16 years.

Bulama said, “Ours has been an issue-based campaign. We have engaged Nigerians; we are persuading them with respect to show and discuss with them on the condition of Nigeria between 2015 and 2019, particularly in the areas of the President’s undertaking to improve security, economy and prevent waste and mismanagement.

“This campaign is propelled by voluntary support and willing participation. The massive crowds you see at our campaign grounds are not paid crowds. They are people that respect President Buhari and the APC leaders.

“So, what we expect is that the 2019 elections will be largely influenced by the freewill of Nigerian voters and by their desire to exercise their franchise. This is what we expect will influence the election, not money, not party, but issues of national interest and the power of our citizens.”

Bulama said the president’s conduct in office had always been guarded by his desire to ensure Nigerians were respected everywhere they went.

He said it would be wrong for any party to claim glory to the reforms witnessed in elections in the country as it was collective efforts of Nigerians.

“The reforms we saw in the election management in this country were a collective advocacy promoted by all stakeholder groups in Nigeria. President Buhari has been an apostle of ensuring that vote counts. He has been an advocate of free and fair elections.”
