Buhari said this in Daura, Katsina State, after casting his vote at Sarkin-Yara ward.

Buhari cast his vote at 5:00 p.m. in company of his wife, Hajiya Aisha, who also cast her vote at Kofar-Baru 3 polling unit.

He said he received complaints in five out of the 36 states of the federation.

Buhari said there was no reason whatsoever for the electoral body to cancel the elections for the hiccups recorded in few places.

“If countries like Afghanistan, Syria and Pakistan, who are experiencing war can conduct elections, I see no reason why INEC will cancel this elections for just few problems,’’ he said.

Buhari urged the commission to improve were there were lapses to strengthen democracy and good governance in the country.

He also expressed hope that his party would win the election.

The candidate commended Nigerians for coming out en masse to exercise their franchise in a peaceful and  orderly manner.

Buhari also said that if elected as President, he would focus attention in reviving agriculture, fighting corruption and creating job opportunities to teeming number of unemployed youths in the country, among others. (NAN)
