General Buhari, who stated this on Friday in Lafia while receiving a CPC gubernatorial aspirant, Alhaji Tanko Al-Makura, who defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), however appealed that Nigerians should not take the law into their hands but rather be law-abiding.

The former head of state also appealed for massive turnout during the voter registration exercise, which begin from January 15.

While commending Al- Makura for leaving PDP, Buhari called on the people of Nasarawa State to vote for him during the governorship election in the state.
