Free, Credible Elections Indispensable To Peace, Stability In W/Africa – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has called on leaders in West Africa to do all within their powers to ensure that elections are conducted in their countries in an atmosphere of trust, freedom and transparency.

The President’s media aide, Garba Shehu, in a statement, said Buhari made the call in a goodwill message to the Government and people of Liberia as he joined other world leaders on the occasion of the 175th Independence Anniversary of the West African nation.

According to the President, this is the only way the sub-region can be insulated from the scourge of unconstitutional take overs that reared its head in three countries recently.

Buhari commended his Liberian counterpart, George Weah, for his demonstration of love for the country and the pursuance of Peace, Unity and Progress, as evidenced by people-oriented projects executed with the sole purpose of taking the country to greater heights within the limited resources available.
