Let us be clear.
The elections for a new government taking place this week and the coming days holds unimaginable consequences and potential to make Nigeria great again.
Their results will affect and impact every Nigerian and future generations of Nigerians worldwide.
What one thing will help to ensure the above objectives?
Your vote is the key that will determine how Nigeria moves forward in every arena of life and will affect our children, their children and generations to come.
Your vote is your chance to stand up for the issues you care about like the rule of law, security, electricity, economic growth, capacity building, jobs creation, salary increases, affordable housing, quality education etc etc
Your vote is your right, granted and protected by the Federal Constitution of Nigeria.
It took many years of marching, protesting, and fighting for all of us to have the right to vote. Use your right. Exert your power.
One way or the other, every person in our community pays taxes – both citizens and non-citizens. And yet, most people don’t know how that money is being used. Your vote is your chance to choose how your tax Naira are spent, Your vote will help you make a positive change for all Nigerians.
Your vote affects our communities, family, friends, loved ones, neighbors, and children.
Your vote will make life easier and better for you and your community and for all Nigerians.
Who should you vote for? This is entirely your own decision and nobody has any right to tell you who to vote for.
Come out en masse because low turnout means that important issues will be determined by a limited group of voters, the change you want may fail if people stay home. So come out enmasse and vote peacefully and may God grant us a good and peaceful elections.
