President Muhammadu Buhari has cast his ballot at his polling unit 003, Sarkin Yara A in Daura, Katsina State.

The President after voting charged the electorate to vote for their preferred candidates even if politicians tried to offer them money.

President Buhari at his polling unit spoke to newsmen both in English and Hausa languages after casting his vote on Saturday, March 18, 2023, saying, his administration had been preaching against vote-buying and monetisation of politics, calling on politicians to desist from such acts.

“If they (politicians) still give you money, collect, but vote for your preferred candidates,” Buhari maintained. He again thanked the electorate for trusting the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the Feb. 25 Presidential and National Assembly elections where the party’s candidate, Sen. Bola Tinubu, emerged winner.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the president, who cast his vote at about 9.55 a.m, refused to ‘openly’ display his ballot paper as he did during the February 25 Presidential election.
