Buhari will show good example by accepting outcome of 2019 election –Onyeama

Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama, says 2019 election is not
a matter of life or death for President Muhammadu Buhari,­ because he
will be happy to accept the verdict of the electorate.

He added that the President will show good example to West
Africa by accepting outcome of the 2019 presidential election –Onyeama

“He is fully committed to ensuring that the next election in 2019 is free, fair and transparent and that each vote counts.

“I think most importantly for him, it is not a matter of life or
death. That is where he is coming from. He is very happy to accept
whatever the outcome is and the will of the people.

“He doesn’t want to interfere with the process; he wants INEC to be totally independent for them to do the right thing.

“He is ready to invest and provide all the resources for them to be totally independent,” he said.

He recalled that Buhari almost did not purchase the nomination form but for the intervention of well wishers.

Onyeama assured Nigerians that Buhari is going to practise what he preaches.

“He has been to Supreme Court to challenge election, he has been on
the other side; he appreciates more than anyone else the importance of
free, fair and transparent election.

“He always said that the electronic process that has been introduced
helping to take away the human element has been the game changer,
something that he loves, so he believes in free and fair election,” he

Onyeama said that Buhari would show good example to West African and other countries by practising what he preaches.

He said that the president led the intervention of ECOWAS in the
Gambia and sent special envoys to Mali, Guinea Bissau and Togo to ensure
democratically elected government in those countries

“He has sent me as a special envoy to ensure that the electoral
process in Guinea Bissau is on course; he sent me as a special envoy to
Mali get the opposition to accept the court ruling after the election.

“He sent me as envoy to Togo to help them to push for a transparent
and fair process as they are also prepare for legislative election.

“He went to the International Criminal Court as a special guest of
honour and delivered a speech to the world about the importance and the
rule of law and fair election,” Onyeama said.
