Promotion of rule of law, promotion of work of institutions of government without interference, promotion of justice, promotion of fairness.
“These are the things that he had done through words and actions, through personal example; he has promoted those things that would engender confidence in Nigerians to accept that the system is fair.
''Because you see incumbency places the responsibility on every leader to ensure that there is freedom, there is fairness, there is justice, that all the institutions of government are not exploited for personal interest.
“All stakeholders who participated in these elections have affirmed these elections as qualitatively better under this dispensation than the previous one.
''That means there is commitment, there is fairness and there is commitment to justice under our government because we are leaders that don’t impose conditions on INEC or the police.

“We have this record and also you see Nigerians have shown greater confidence in democracy because under our leadership Nigerians registered to vote increased from 68.5 million to 84 million.
