May 29 handover date remains sacrosanct – Pres. Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the May 29 handover date for the new administration is sacrosanct.

Speaking in Abuja, on Friday, April 21, Buhari said Nigerians cherish democracy and have shown their love for it, adding that the citizenry will defend democracy from any real or perceived thr£ats.

He said the future of democracy as a system of government was bright.

According to him, “Nigerians appreciate the stability of democracy. The outcome of the elections, in which more than 10 governors failed to make it to the Senate, sent a clear message that ordinary Nigerians know the power of their votes and how to use it.

Nigerians cherish democracy. They have shown their love for it and will defend it against real or perceived thr£ats. They will continue to vote one way or the other depending on their preferences.

The May 29 hand over date remains sacrosanct. God willing, nothing will stop it.”
