President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived in Daura, Katsina State, in preparation for the Presidential Elections on Saturday, February 25, 2023.
His spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, in a statement, said the President was on Thursday received by the Katsina State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari and Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Amb. Ahmed Rufai Abubakar.
He said the President would cast his vote at a polling unit close to his country home in Daura, alongside his wife, Aisha Buhari and other family members.
Shehu added that President Buhari, whose helicopter landed at 5:25 in Daura, preparatory to the elections, would participate, not as a candidate as he had done since 2003, but as a voter.
The presidential aide said the President made sure that all members of his family, members of the entourage, including security, protocol and other staff were registered to vote in Daura, knowing the importance of every single vote.
He said President Buhari had actively participated in the campaigns of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and presented the flagbearer, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as his preferred successor, showcasing his record of statesmanship and contributions to economic development and democracy before heading home for the elections.
