Aisha Buhari asks youths to shun violence
Wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, has called on Nigerian youths to shun violence before, during and after the general elections.
She, however, advised them to come out and vote.
Represented by wife of the Vice-President, Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo, the President’s wife spoke at the All Progressives Congress’ South-South Women and Youth Presidential Campaign in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Tuesday.
She urged the region’s youths to vote for APC candidates at all levels.
She said, “Vote for APC. There is nothing more precious to us than our children and our youths. So, the APC government is working for you night and day.
“On the days of the elections, nobody should be sleeping at home. On the days of elections, all of us should go happily to vote the APC.
“After voting, we must wait until our votes are counted; we must also make sure that we vote peacefully and that when we vote, there should be no fighting.”
Mrs Buhari explained that the APC had indicated, through it numerous programmes, that its interest is in the development of Nigeria.
She said, “This government is interested in the youth; that is why it is feeding children in schools through the school feeding programme.
“This government is interested in the youth; that is why it has the N-Power programme that is empowering youths.”
