President Muhammadu Buhari has urged politicians in Rivers State not to view the upcoming rerun elections as a do or die affair.

Buhari also urged security agencies in the state to deal with anyone who attempt to cause trouble in the state.

"The rerun elections should not be seen as a do-or-die affair to the extent that people will be killed, maimed and property destroyed in a mindless display of crude primitive instincts,” he said via a statement released by his spokesman, Femi Adesina.

 

“Innocent blood should never be sacrificed on the altar of political contest for temporary power,” he added.

The elections will expectedly hold on Saturday, December 10.
