President Muhammadu Buhari has cast his vote at Polling Unit 003, Sarkin Yara A in Daura, Katsina State, calling the electorate to vote for their preferred candidates even if politicians tried to offer them money.

The president, who briefly spoke to newsmen both in English and Hausa languages after casting his vote on Saturday, said his administration had been preaching against vote-buying and monetisation of politics, calling on politicians to desist from such acts.

He again thanked the electorate for trusting the All Progressives 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 am, refused to ‘openly’ display his ballot paper as he did during the Feb. 25 Presidential election.
