Dr Kayode Ajulo, a Human Rights lawyer, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s broadcast on the eve of 2019 Presidential and National Assembly elections, was above party sentiments and personal biases.
Ajulo, in a statement on friday in Illorin also stated that beyond the fatherly tone of the broadcast, President Buhari also doused a number of worries and raised the bars for civility, fairness and incorruptibility.
He said that the speech also offered profound templates and scored high point above personal biases and party sentiments.
The legal practitioner who said that the President did not mince words in Friday’s broadcast, reminded Nigerians of the fundamentals that defined our democratic enterprise.
Ajulo who double as the National Secretary of “Forward With Buhari (FWB)” group added that President Buhari’s speech was laced with pitfalls Nigerians must avoid in their collective bid to evolve the great country of their dreams.
“It is particularly profound that President Buhari eminently towers high above personal biases and party sentiments by urging Nigerians to vote for candidates of their choices,” he said.
Ajulo also said that this stance alone was patriotic and particularly instructive, adding that it was largely edifying and typically presidential.
“It is even more patriotic and leader-like reinforcing confidence of Nigerians in the ability and capacity of the electoral umpires to give Nigeria a credible outing.
“President Buhari called on Nigerians to carry such patriotic messages in their minds as they carried their cards with utmost respect for the laws and the process to elect leaders for Nigeria for another four years tenure,” he stated.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that President Buhari in a nationwide broadcast at 7 a.m on Friday, urged Nigerians to exercise their democratic rights without fear or intimidation as they go to poll on Saturday.(NAN)
