Bauchi Assembly Speaker urges voters to avoid vote buyers

Ruth  Yarnap Bauchi

Speaker of the Bauchi state House of Assembly, Suleiman Abubakar, has appealed to the electorate in Bauchi state to shun money politics in order to ensure that only competent leaders emerge from elections.

Rt. Hon. Abubakar Sulaiman who gave the advise while speaking to newsmen at his Ningi home, advised the electorate to avoid any politician who may want to buy their votes.

The Speaker appealed to the electorate in the state to vote the right candidates in order to salvage the country from all the challenges bedeviling it.

Abubakar said he was highly impressed with the massive turnout of the electorate so far in the presidential and National Assembly polls, stressing that it was an indication that the people are tired of the situations they are experiencing in the country and want to usher in a new government.

“So far the turnout of the electorate is very impressive from the reports I have been receiving from all over the state except for other minor reports which we were able to rectify. One of the major challenges experienced in the election is the misrepresentation of the BVAS Machines. There are also some polling units that do not have election materials which we are also following up in order to resolve it.”

“Even though there are lapses in the election, I believe that the appropriate authorities are learning from all these mistakes, and I believe that in the next election, all these minor issues will be addressed before the conduct of the next election. So, I am calling on INEC to look into all these issues and address them” he said.

The Speaker debunked the allegation by the APC that the PDP in the state was working to rig the governorship election, saying that the PDP already has the support of the masses because it has fulfilled all its campaign promises it made to the people of the state when it came into power.
