As Nigerians return to the polls tomorrow, President Goodluck Jonathan has urged contestants in Saturday’s governorship and House of Assembly elections across the country to respect the will of the people.
This, he said, became important as his administration promotes a new Nigeria, “that is a pacesetter and light bearer in the practice of democratic politics without bitterness.”
The President stated this in his election message to Nigerians and called on all registered voters to come out en masse and exercise their right to vote.
President Jonathan also assured that safety of the electorate is guaranteed.
“I have instructed our security agents to fully facilitate the right of Nigerians to choose leaders of their choice at the gubernatorial and assembly levels by remaining non- partisan and ensuring that we all vote in a secure environment. Because of their sacrifice in securing our nation, we can all be confident to come out and vote our conscience all over the federation,” the President said.Follow Us on Social Media
