APC candidates

Nigeria’s president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has called on APC members and supporters to come out and vote overwhelmingly for all its candidates in Saturday’s supplementary elections.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, will conduct supplementary Governorship Elections in Adamawa and Kebbi states, five Senatorial Districts, and 31 Federal and 58 State Assembly constituencies across the federation tomorrow.

However, Tinubu, in a statement on Friday said “I must also use this opportunity to enjoin my All Progressives Congress members and the teeming supporters in the areas listed for the polls to come out in their large numbers to cast their votes for the party’s candidates.

Our party members and supporters should vote overwhelmingly for APC to complement and solidify the victory we recorded in the earlier polls.

“This will no doubt help in the effective functioning of government at the federal and state levels for the benefit of our people.”

He also called on Nigerians in the areas slated for the polls to conduct themselves peacefully and eschew violence and any act prejudicial to orderly electoral processes.

This supplementary election is as important as the first set of elections, the Presidential and National Assembly poll held on February 25 and the Governorship and State Houses of Assembly election organised on March 18.

“I urge all Nigerians in areas where the additional polls will take place to eschew violence and conduct themselves in an orderly and peaceful manner,” he said.

Tinubu added: “We should desist from acts prejudicial to the conduct of orderly polls or that will threaten the very existence of the country. It’s only when there is a country that aspirants to political offices can have seats to contest for and the electorate have people seeking their votes.
