Some residents of Kaduna State on Wednesday commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for conducting what they described as a free and fair elections at the Feb. 23 polls.
The residents, who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in separate interviews, said the Saturday election was one of the best INEC had ever conducted.
Mr Usman Musa, a resident said that the elections were peacefully conducted with few incidences of violence in some parts of the country which he said were inevitable.
He advised the second runner up of the presidential election, Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to be patient and accept the result as destiny.
Another resident, Usman Sani noted that the people’s conduct during the elections was commendable saying people came out to vote for candidates of their choice and not to fight.
“We prayed to God to choose the one that is best leader for us and He chose Buhari; we hope he will continue to serve Nigeria better,” he said.
Ramatu Shuaibu, thanked God for a peaceful election adding that it was the best she had witnessed in the country so far.
Muhammad Auwal urged winners of the Saturday polls to be accountable to the people who voted for them.
He enjoined the winners not to betray the trust of the people.
Also, Sani Haruna urged the winners to exercise the fear of God and remember the masses who came out and voted for them.
He urged them to make education and employment provision their priority.
However, David Eziche noted that there were flaws in the polls as violence disrupted elections in some parts of the country.
He also alleged that INEC disenfranchised some sections of the country.
” They were cases of violence in some parts of the country while elections were not conducted in some others.
“INEC should have re -conducted elections in those places before announcing results,” he said.
Eziche however urged the winners to lay a good principle and serve Nigerians well.
NAN reports that residents of Kaduna metropolis, Rigasa, and Tudun Wada areas were in celebration mood as women and youths were on the roads singing and dancing because of President Buhari’s victory.
