INEC is a work of God and we owe it to him. “We also owe it to the people
of Bauchi who have stood very firm on the threshold of freedom and liberty

the supplementary election deserved to be celebrated. He however, called
on all his supporters to celebrate in peace.

and with gratitude to God because what we want is peace and tranquility,
harmony and good relationship with one another.
“We do not have any acrimony or hatred against anybody, even those who
didn’t vote for us, we want them to join us in this celebration because
this is democracy,” he said. Muhammed also appreciated the security
agencies in the state promising to continue to work with them as they had
shown they were the key partners of the society. (NAN)
