The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, has urged the Federal Government to ensure the conduct of free, fair and credible elections in 2019.
Abubakar, represented by the Emir of Keffi, Dr Shehu Chindo Yamusa, made the appeal on Friday at the 29th Muslim Sister’s National Conference in Abuja.
“Let me justifiably appeal to the government on 2019 election to demonstrate moral determination to conduct a credible, free and fair elections, to fulfil the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, article 21 Section 3,” he said.
The Sultan quoted the section as follows: “The will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of government.
“The will shall be expressed in periodic and general elections which shall be made by universal equal suffrage through secret vote or free voting procedure.”
He, therefore, urged Muslim sisters to exercise their democratic franchise and support religious institutions in the realisation of credible elections in the country.
