Akor stated: “President Muhammadu Buhari is not the president of a political party but president of Nigeria. As you can see, the 36 state governors would also led similar walks across the country, and they are also of different parties.
“The goal of the 2018 walk is to mobilise Nigerians to take ownership of the 2019 electoral process through participation, education and enlightenment; and to commit to nurture and protect our democracy.”
