The former Vice President commended the management and members of the NLC for organizing a peaceful and successful election adding that at a time the entire country is set to go into general elections, the peaceful, free and fair polls should challenge the national electoral body, security agencies, the candidates and indeed all Nigerians to emulate a good example of the NLC.
