Buhari arrives ICC, promises 2019 elections free and fair


President Mohammadu Buhari arrived at International Criminal Court (ICC) to deliver a keynote address at the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the court. He is the only president invited to grace the anniversary.


According to him, 2019 General elections would be free, fair and peaceful election compare to that of 2011 elections where lives were lost. He said such violence would not happen under his watch.

"Let me intimate you that Nigeria is preparing to conduct general elections in 2019.
“Contrary to the tragic incidents that characterised the 2011 general elections in Nigeria which necessitated preliminary investigations by the International Criminal Court, I assure you that all hands are on deck to prevent any recurrence of such tragic incidents".
“We shall do everything possible to ensure that Nigeria witnesses the conduct of free, fair and peaceful elections in 2019.” He said.
