Eventually, the INEC has successfully started conducting the 2019 elections commencing with the Presidential and the National Assemblies elections that has been postponed previously from Saturday February 16 to Saturday February 23 across various poling units in Nigeria.
President Muhammadu Buhari left Abuja Friday to his home town in Daura to exercise his civic duty of voting for the candidate of his choice today Saturday during the Presidential and National Assemblies elections.
Prior to the elections, the police authorities in conjunction with INEC had announced that there would be no vehicular movement from 6.00am to 6.00pm on the election day and that only personnel on special duties would be allowed to move about with vehicles of any kind.
Contrary to this, President Muhammadu Buhari actually drove to his poling unit in his motorcade thereby undermining the directive given by the police authorities.
Another incidence that has caught the attention of many is when the Buhari was caught on camera spying on the ballot paper of his wife Aisha Buhari in a bid ascertain whether the wife voted for him or not probably because the wife has been very critical of his government sometimes.
It is also claimed that the wife of the President hails from Adamawa State, the state of the PDP Presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar who is the major challenger of Buhari in the Presidential elections; this could as well been responsible for the suspicion Buhari had about his wife Aisha.
Verifying that Aisha voted for him and his party by directly looking at the ballot paper of the wife is a breach of the principle of one man one vote and also against the electoral laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as stipulated by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC.
The President and his Aides has at now not responded to these acts that has gone viral on the internet, sooner or later there might be reaction from him and various quarters.
