President Goodluck Jonathan has sent his message of encouragement via his Facebook page to all Nigerians in conjunction with Saturday’s gubernatorial and State Assembly elections and requested all to come out en mass to exercise their constitutional rights.
The outgoing President has also guaranteed all Nigerians a safe and fearless poll and urged the security forces to secure all polling facilities so that everyone can come out to vote without fears.
GEJ also requested of the contestants to be respectful of the will and choice of the people, who will vote with their conscience and free from fears.
“As Nigeria returns to the polls tomorrow, I encourage all registered voters to come out en masse and exercise their right to vote. 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. I urge contestants to respect the will of the people as we promote a new Nigeria that is a pacesetter and light bearer in the practice of democratic politics without bitterness. May God bless Nigeria. GEJ”
