President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to ensure that candidates with integrity emerge in the 2023 general elections.
An aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Kano Central Senatorial district seat, Senator Basheer Lado, made this known after meeting with the President.
The former Director-General of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) quoted Buhari as saying that he is committed to ensuring fair and peaceful 2023 general elections.
According to him, Buhari declared his commitment to credible elections that would ensure the emergence of candidates with integrity.
Lado made this known while addressing State House Correspondents after his meeting with the President at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday.
He said: “After my briefing, Mr. President reiterated his commitment to credible and peaceful elections and also his desire to see candidates with integrity prevail at the polls all across Nigeria.
“As you are aware, Kano State is the largest producer of votes in Nigeria. It is the decider of who becomes the next president in the presidential election.
“Just like my Governor HE Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has done in the past, I respectfully informed and reassured Mr President that the APC is still the party to beat in Kano despite recent defections.”
