Rivers Election Rerun is Not a Do or Die Affair- President Buhari

Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari has warned APC and PDP politicians not to treat the Rivers state election rerun as a do or die affair.

In a statement released on Friday, he urged politicians and the people of Rivers state to put the “higher interest of the people of the state in mind, as they go to the polls on Saturday.”

Buhari also called on all electoral stakeholders to ensure that tomorrow’s elections are conducted without “rigging, violence and intimidation of opponents and electoral officials.

He also urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to do all within its powers to give transparency and fairness to the electoral exercise in Rivers State.
