President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday assured the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, that he was all out to ensure free, fair and credible elections in 2019.
He said he was pleased that his party, the ruling All Progressives Congress, was doing well.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, disclosed this in a statement made available to journalists shortly after Buhari held a closed-door meeting with May at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The President welcomed the United Kingdom’s support aimed at strengthening democratic institutions in Nigeria.
He said, “I assure you that I’m all out for free, fair and credible elections. I’m very pleased that my party is doing very well. The High Commissioner will brief you more. The recent successes in polls in Katsina, Bauchi, and Kogi have boosted our morale greatly.
“Nigeria has accepted multi-party democracy and that is putting politicians on their toes, forcing them to work harder.”
