President Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed why he openly showed his ballot paper after voting in Daura, Katsina State.
Buhari said he displayed his ballot paper openly to show that he voted for the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
He said the display of his ballot paper was to demonstrate his allegiance to the party.
Buhari expressed his happiness over the massive turnout of people during the election.
According to Buhari: “All over the place I mentioned my favourite candidate, Asiwaju Tinubu, and I believe my constituency will elect him 100 percent.
“Nigerians should make sure that they are respected; that means that the candidate they want to vote for they are allowed to vote for him.”
Prior to Saturday’s election, there were insinuations of an alleged rift between Buhari and Tinubu.
Tinubu had accused Buhari’s government of using the naira redesign and fuel scarcity to frustrate his presidential ambition.
However, Buhari had urged Nigerians to vote for Tinubu.
