President Muhammadu Buhari has urged political party candidates to continue running issue-focused campaigns and to treat opponents with dignity, saying politics should never be seen as a” do-or-die” affair.
The president made the appeal in his 2022 Democracy Day broadcast to the nation on Sunday in Abuja.
”Another positive that came from the 2022 party primaries was the significant increase in women and youth, particularly across all parties. I was very pleased to see this development.
He said his administration had made significant investments to reform and enhance the nation’s electoral laws, systems and processes to safeguard their votes.
