The Emir of Zazzau Shehu Idris, has called on Nigerians to respect the rule of law and promote national unity toward building a formidable country.
He made the appeal in an interview with newsmen shortly after casting his vote at Emir’s palace Polling Unit in Zaria, Kaduna State, on Saturday.
The monarch, who is also the Chairman, Kaduna State Council of Emirs and Chiefs, said the call became imperative in view of the fact that peace was critical to meaningful development.
The traditional ruler lauded the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC for improving on the previous elections and security personnel for providing adequate security during the elections.
The emir, however, commended the people for coming out in their large numbers, exercising their franchise.
