Eid-El-Fitr: Buhari Hails Peaceful Elections, Calls For Tolerance


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the peaceful outcome of the 2023 general elections would go down on  record as one of the proudest achievements of his administration in addition to neutrality in the conduct of the elections.

In his goodwill message to Muslims on the occasion of the Eid-el-fitr celebration to mark the end of the 30-day Ramadan fasting season.

In the goodwill message made available to Journalists by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, Buhari explained that “the outcome of the elections were in line with my pledge to leave a legacy of free and fair elections.

“I’m proud that I have created a level playing field for all contestants regardless of party affiliation in order to produce a fair outcome for all.”

According to the President, “free and fair elections are the only principles that give credibility to our democracy, because the subversion of the will of the people undermines democracy itself.”

“The elections were so transparent that even members of the my own party were routed and unseated. At no point did I interfere with the process in order to give unfair advantage to anyone,” the President added.

On the Ramadan fast, Buhari congratulated Muslims on successfully completing the demanding spiritual obligation.

While praying to Allah to reward the Muslims for their sacrifices during the fasting season, Buhari advised that “we shouldn’t forget the important lessons of the Ramadan which includes improving our bond with the underprivileged and poor members of society.”

According to him, “abstention from food and drinks during the fasting period had made it possible for us to appreciate the situation of those who go without eating every day.”
