He issued the statement during a meeting with traditional rulers at the secretariat complexes of the Councils of Traditional Rulers in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, and Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, on Tuesday.

“I assure you that I’m all out for free, fair and credible elections. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) knows my stand on this,” Buhari said.

“In 16 years, the PDP thought nobody could remove them from office. The introduction of the PVC and Card Reader made sure that our votes counted in 2015 and the votes of Nigerians will count in 2019.’’ 

Regarding security, Buhari reaffirmed his commitment to ensure the protection of lives and property.

“The question of security begins with you,” Buhari reminded the royal fathers, even as he commended them for calming down the restive situation in the Niger Delta.

“Through you, we have been able to persuade the militants to change their attitudes. I congratulate you on the roles you played that stabilised the security and the economy of the country,” he said.
