FG Directs Security Agencies To Ensure The Sanctity Of 2019 General Elections

The Federal Government has given further directives to all security and law enforcement agencies in the country to ensure and safeguard the sanctity of the 2019 General Elections.

The Honourable Minister of Interior, Lt Gen (Rtd) Abdulrahman Bello Dambazau CFR PhD gave the directive today in his office in Abuja.

According to him, “Security reports indicate that some individuals and groups of persons, including politicians and their sponsors are bent on subverting the integrity of the electoral process. For the avoidance of any doubt, I want to reiterate the commitment of His Excellency Muhammadu Buhari, President and Commander-in-Chief to the rule of law.  I also want to assure all peace loving Nigerians in the entire country that this Administration is committed to free, fair and credible elections.

In this regard, all security and law enforcement agencies are under strict instruction to safeguard the sanctity of the 2019 General Elections and that anybody found engaging in covert or overt action capable of sabotaging or subverting the process, with the aim of denying the citizens of Nigeria their right to vote for any candidate or party of their choice, or to cause public disorder, will be dealt with in accordance with the law.”  Dambazau said.
