The governorship candidate of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) in Kano State, Malam Salihu Sagir Takai, has called on eligible voters across the country to come out en masse and vote during Saturday’s rescheduled presidential and National Assembly elections.
Malam Takai, who made the appeal in a statement issued by his spokesman, Auwalu Mu’azu, said the call became necessary in view of the apparent anger, frustration, shock and surprise expressed by Nigerians over the sudden postponement of the elections by INEC.
He noted that except well-meaning Nigerians across all walks of life rose to the occasion and mobilised voters to participate in the rescheduled polls, the exercise might be marred by voter apathy.
“In the light of the seeming disappointment of Nigerians at the polls shift, it has become necessary for all of us to work assiduously towards making sure that we encourage the electorate to come out in their numbers and take part in the coming rescheduled elections,” Takai said.
In the same vein, Malam Takai drummed support for the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari to enable him to continue with the good work he started for the country.
