I’m using this privilege to call out our people to come out massively and vote their conscience, competent leader for the best interest of their future and generation unborn.
I am expecting the INEC to be accountable and put their integrity to work for once. Looking at the social media, you will see a lot of irregularities, and Nigerians have totally lost confidence in the INEC; it’s very unfortunate.
