Former President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerians to support the leaders of the country from the lowest to the highest office in the country, saying that is what is needed at this crucial juncture of our democracy.

Speaking to journalists in Daura, shortly after observing the Eid prayer on Wednesday, the former president congratulated Muslims on the successful completion of the Ramadan fasting and the performance of the Eid, and urged “All citizens to support our leaders from the local government level to the highest at the centre in their efforts to transform the landscape of the nation.”

Buhari said, “Support for our leaders, is a vote for a better tomorrow. It is imperative that we stand united in safeguarding the sovereignty and integrity of our nation” and called on  contestants to political offices in our elections “To always ensure a smooth succession from one administration to another without stoking communal tensions and obstructing development, irrespective of political party affiliation.”

The former president expressed his appreciation to the people of Daura, and the state in general for, according to him, a warm welcome and expressed his happiness at being in the midst of his people after finishing his term as president.
