President Goodluck Jonathan has sent a message to Nigerians ahead of the upcoming elections.
Nigeria’s Governorship and State House of Assembly elections are slated to hold on Saturday, April 11, 2015.
Read Jonathan’s message, as posted on his Facebook page, below:
“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.”
Jonathan is expected to vacate his office on May 29, 2015, after losing the March 28 presidential elections to opponent, Muhammadu Buhari.
