President Muhammadu Buhari and presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Monday afternoon returned to Abuja from his Daura, country home, 48 hours after the conduct of the presidential election.

Buhari who arrived Abuja before 12 noon, told journalists that he would not be bothered by rumours on the results of last Saturday’s presidential election, saying he would rather wait for the final announcement of results by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

“I don’t want to depend on rumours, but we will rather wait for INEC to announce the results,” he said.

Asked what is his message to Nigerians this season, Buhari said he expected citizens to appreciate that the federal government provided them with security and peaceful atmosphere to cast their votes.

“Well, l hope that Nigerians will appreciate that it was this government which made sure that they were allowed in security and peace to cast their votes for whichever party and candidates they wanted,” he added.
