Abuja, March 23, 2023 – The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) says the president has lived up to his billing by providing a level playing ground for all parties in the just concluded elections.

According to a statement signed by its Chairman Niyi Akinsiju, and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke, the group said that this was a truly remarkable feat.

It said this feat was, especially significant as the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) lost some of its major strongholds to opposition parties.

“What President Muhammadu Buhari did by not deploying what is known locally as federal might is something that many Nigerians are not used to?

“Even before now, off-season elections on the President’s watch have been known to have been conducted under a good atmosphere, so we were not surprised to see that he did not do what some of his predecessors were known to have done.

“Here is a man whose party has no recent history of losing an election in his home state of Katsina, but we all witnessed how APC and its candidate lost in that state.

“Same scenario played out in Lagos State, which is also a major stronghold of the ruling party and the home state of Bola Tinubu, APC’s presidential candidate. Tinubu, now President-elect, lost the state to an opposition party.

“These two examples show that Buhari stood above the political fray and refused to do what an average Nigerian political leader would do.

“We see this as an affirmation of what U.S President Joe Biden saw when he described the Nigerian President as a model of democracy in Africa,” the group said. (GBN)
