President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, assured Nigerians that he will ensure a level playing field for all his opponents in the general elections in 2019.
Buhari stated this while receiving a delegation from the International Republican and National Democratic Institute, United States of America, at the State House in Abuja.
“I am glad you are here to assess our pre-election preparations.
“It reminds me of the visit by the then Secretary of State, John Kerry, before the 2015 polls. We appreciate the concern of America for stability in developing countries.
“Having run for president three times, ending up at the Supreme Court all three times, before God and technology made a way for me the fourth time, I know what it is to be cheated at the polls.
“What they used to do was just to award votes and tell anyone who was dissatisfied to go to court. But we won’t do that. I am prepared to give the opposition the opportunities I was not given in the past,” the president was quoted as saying in a statement by his media aide, Femi Adesina
Buhari also insisted he had told the heads of the security agencies not to be partisan, but to do their work professionally and allow the will of the people to prevail.
