He advised the people to be peaceful, describing that as one of the best ways to prevent electoral fraud.
Danjuma who spoke during the inauguration of a medical laboratory at the Rufkatu Danjuma Maternity Hospital in Takum in Taraba State, said those planning to perpetuate fraud would not be able to achieve their goal in a peaceful atmosphere.

His words: “We must work hard for peace in addition to just registering and obtaining our Permanent Voter Cards.
“There is no need to fight one another because they will use the police and soldiers to destabilise us and rig the elections.
“It is in our best interest to ensure there is peace. Those behind this plot know that they will not win elections if there is peace. I want to call on you not to sell your votes because you will be selling your birthright if you do so.”
