Collect Money From Politicians, Vote Your Candidate
Meanwhile, Buhari has urged electorates in Kastina State to accept money from politicians in the ongoing governorship and house of Assembly election.
Naija News learnt that Buhari made this known after casting his vote at polling unit 003, Sarkin Yara A in Daura, Katsina State.
The president refused to openly display his ballot paper like he did during the February 25 Presidential election which got many people talking.
According to Vanguard, Buhari who briefly spoke to newsmen both in English and Hausa languages after casting his vote said his administration had been preaching against vote-buying and monetization of politics.
He urged politicians to desist from all electoral malpractices and called on the electorate to vote for their preferred candidates even if politicians tried to offer them money.
