President Buhari today in Daura, pronounced that he would need to be recognized as a leader who kept his words that elections in Nigeria must be free, reasonable and sound.

The President who described last Saturday’s Governorship and State Assembly elections across the country as largely successful said:

‘‘I have maintained a position that elections must be free and fair and people have the right to make their choices and vote their consciences. I am happy they understood the message and did just that.

‘‘Power is a public trust that belongs to the people. Power is not by strength or wisdom but by Providence. Elected persons must be fair and just. This is the legacy I want to leave behind. A leader must be fair and just. All leaders should strive to do that.’’

Governor Masari, who was joined by authorities of the All Progressives Congress (APC) party in Katsina State, expressed gratitude toward the President and the gathering for the help which prompted his conclusive triumph on March 9.

The Governor swore to work for the benefit of the people of Katsina State, in accordance with the vision of the Next Level government at the centre.
