The National Security Adviser (NSA), Malam Nuhu Ribadu, has assured Nigerians that President Bola Tinubu- led government is ready to support security operatives ad other stakeholders to deliver free and fair governorship elections in Imo, Kogi and Bayelsa State on 11 November.
Ribadu who said this while speaking at the Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES) meeting on the governorship elections at his office in Abuja added that the President had already given orders to ensure that the governorship elections are free and fair.
While assuring that security agencies were fully prepared for the state elections, Ribadu said nothing is as important as a free and fair election in a democracy.
He added that the President has already ordered that the atmosphere must be provided to make the governorship election in the three states free and fair.
“Mr President has given his orders. He said he wants to see free, fair, credible elections and these are going to be the first elections under his watch.
“He said that we should take this message to INEC and to Nigerians that he is going to be very much available to support you to make sure Nigeria have free and fair elections.
“I also to tell everyone including the politicians, nothing much more important than to have a free and fair election, if we want this country is to move forward.
“ He is a democrat, he believes in democracy. He will support you. Already we have seen it as the entire requirement we have put out to him, he has given us the go ahead.
“The entire security forces and all our requirement has been met, the rest is for us to deliver,’’ the NSA said.
