The President describing the claim as baseless, noting that at no time did he give instructions that the electorate should vote particular candidates.
He, however, has called on Nigerians to come out en masse and participate in the supplementary elections scheduled for Saturday.
President Buhari appealed to voters not to get tired of coming out to vote in the supplementary elections, saying “these elections are no less important than others before them.”
He urged the people to vote for the candidates they believe would deliver on promises because it was their constitutionally guaranteed democratic rights.
The President, therefore, called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the security agencies to ensure that the supplementary polls were conducted peacefully and in accordance with the law and Constitution.
He thanked the voters for re-electing him for a second term in office and promised not to forget their sacrifices in defying harsh weather conditions to vote for him.
“I was deeply overwhelmed by your show of incredible confidence in me, and I will never let you down. Thank you for your sincere show of support for me,” President Buhari stated.
He gave assurance that he would work with elected representatives of the people regardless of the political party platforms on which they were elected.
The President said he would also work in the best interest of the country and democracy.
INEC had fixed March 23 to conduct supplementary polls in 17 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), following the March 9 Governorship and House of Assembly elections.
See the states where the exercise will take place below:
It read in part: “The meeting noted a number of cancellations in certain areas due to violence, which prevented the Commission from deploying personnel and materials for the elections.
“In a number of locations, it could not conclude the elections due to disruptions and deliberate compliance with the use of Smart Card Reader (SCR), contrary to the INEC Regulations and Guidelines for the conduct of elections.
“Consequently, the meeting decided that supplementary elections will be conducted in all areas where elections did not take place and/or where returns could not be made on Saturday, March 9th, 2019, alongside governorship and state Houses of Assembly elections.”
The re-run elections held in 11 states across Nigeria have ended and were adjudged peaceful, but with low turnout of voters.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) conducted the governorship and House of Assembly elections in Abia, Imo, Taraba, Delta and Kogi States amongst others. The April 11 elections in some local councils in the states were declared inconclusive.
Results of the elections are being expected.
In Imo State, officials of INEC were arrested for thumb-printing ballot papers in the governorship re-run election.
The persons were arrested at Omuma Primary School in Oru East Local Government.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner in Imo, Dr. Gabiral Ada, confirmed the arrest.
He said that the officials were already in Police custody.
The re-run was between Governor Rochas Okorocha of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Emeka Ihedioha of the PDP.
Before INEC’s decision on April 12, the incumbent governor and the APC candidate was leading.
In Abia State, voting in several local government areas in the governorship re-run election ended peacefully.
Election was held in all the areas earlier listed by INEC for the re-run election except in Umunneochi Local Government Area.
INEC had erroneously scheduled election there, which was not supposed to take place in the first instance because the Form, EC40G, was not filled which indicated that there was no problem in the area.
The supplementary election was between Okezie Ikpeazu of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Alex Otti of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
Taraba State governorship re-run was also said to been concluded peacefully.
It was between the candidate of the PDP, Darius Ishaku and that of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Aisha Alhassan.
After collating the results from 16 out of the 17 local government areas of the state in the April 11 governorship election, the Taraba State Returning Officer for the governorship election, Muhammadu Kyari, declared the election inconclusive.
He said that the decision was taken because the number of cancelled votes was above the gap between the PDP candidate who came first and the APC candidate who came second.
Before the election was declared inconclusive, Mr Ishaku had polled 317, 198 while Senator Aisha had 262, 383 votes.
The elections were held in 10 local government areas of Bali Zing, Takum, Yorro, Donga, Wukari, Ussa, Karim Lamido, Kurmi and Jalingo.
The exercise held in 159 polling units with a potential 127,125 registered voters expected to exercise their franchise.
In Ekti State, There was a low turnout of voters in Ilejemeje Constituency in Ekiti State, where supplementary House of Assembly elections held in 20 polling units.
Few voters were at polling units for accreditation earlier in the day.
The same scenario played out at Polling Unit 007 Imose-Ise, Owakuta Polling Unit 003 and Ise Polling Unit 006.
INEC had deployed three National Commissioners and three Resident Electoral Commissioners to beef up the human capacity of the commission for the polls. The electoral body had assured Nigerians that election would be peaceful, free and fair.
Security was also beefed up in the three states where the supplementary governorship election was held.
The Acting Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase, issued the restriction order on Friday.
“This restriction of vehicular movements order affects movements in and out of the areas where the rerun elections are to take place, except for ambulances, fire service trucks and others on essential duties,” the police said in a statement.
A group of Accredited Independent National Electoral Commission Observers in the Anambra governorship election have called on the electorate to come out en masse to exercise their right to vote at the supplementary elections scheduled to hold on Saturday.
The electoral umpire then announced that the supplementary election would hold on Saturday, November 30, 2013.
Although aggrieved parties in the Anambra governorship election have said that they would take no part in the supplementary election and have asked their supporters to boycott the supplementary election in some electoral wards in Idemili North and Onitsha South Local Government Areas, the group of accredited observers urged electorate to ensure exercise of their fundamental human right.
Speaking in an interactive forum with journalists in Awka ahead of the Saturday polls, the Director General of the Center for Credible Leadership and Citizens Awareness and the head of the group, Dr. Gabriel Nwambu, stated that supplementary election was not alien in the electoral process of the country as it had been done in Imo state in 2011.
He maintained that a supplementary election was the only medium that would pave way for the genuine declaration of the winner of the Anambra governorship polls as provided by the law.
