Remain neutral, ensure credible polls, Buhari tells police

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday had a piece of advice for the police;they must remain politically-neutral and ensure the success of next year’s elections.

The President restated his commitment to free, fair, transparent and credible polls at the opening of a conference and retreat organised for senior police personnel in Owerri, the Imo State capital.

“I re-affirmed on the global stage that ‘as President, I have set the goal that one of the enduring legacies I would like to leave is to entrench a process of free, fair, transparent and credible elections through which Nigerians elect leaders of their choice.

In my address at the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on September 19, 2017, I made it very clear that ‘our faith in democracy remains firm and unshaken”.

In reinforcing my commitment during my farewell speech at UNGA’s 77th Session on September 21, 2022, I noted: “We have invested heavily to strengthen our framework for free and fair elections’ and hence, I re-affirmed on the global stage that as President, I have set the goal that one of the enduring legacies I would like to leave is to entrench a process of free, fair, transparent and credible elections through which Nigerians elect leaders of their choice.
