To elect means “to choose or make a decision”, An election is a formal group decision-making process by which a population chooses an individual to hold public office.Election by international standard ought to be violent free. Your civic duty as a citizen is to choose or decide who your leader will be.
Resist the temptation of being use by any politician as an instrument of electoral violence.It has a great consequences and it’s punishable. The blood you might be used to shed or properties to be destroyed might be yours by proxy.Those who instigated you will never encourage their children and loved ones to be involved in such act. Value yourself and seek for a better Nigeria that will be of benefit to you and your children born or unborn tomorrow.
Any aggrieved politician can channel his grievance in accordance to the law to the tribunal.

Why seek to fight to waste your life when there is a solution to every problem here on earth.
Enough of being foolish and be a responsible citizen who appreciates peace and unity of the country than being used by someone to cause havoc to fellow citizens. Arise and be wise.
Vote buying is a corrupt election practice and a widespread phenomenon.It is usually viewed as a purely economic exchange in which the voter sells his or her vote to the highest bidder.
It’s implications shows your value and worth in the period of the reign of the returned elected .
For instance if you sell your vote as traders money with the sum of #10,000 it means you worth #6.85k per day for the next four years and you sold your future to the next level of hardship and economic doom.
Vote buying is against the law and it is a criminal punishable offence.Beware of this and discourage the act of vote buying.
Do vote your conscience, vote the candidate that is energetic and experienced,vote the individual that can perform and create enabling environment for you to make more than #6.85k per day, vote the person that will provide adequate security and unite Nigeria again and get Nigeria working again.
By this you know what I mean.
Police officers on electoral duties have the responsibility to ensure that peaceful condition are maintained in all polling unit. They are to provide adequate security of all electorate, INEC officials and election materials in the polling unit and to apprehend anyone with an intention of disrupting the electoral processes.
Police officers are not to be partisant ,they are neither APC Police nor PDP Police but rather Nigeria Police to help maintaining law and order where citizens are.
Nigeria as a nation ought to be called a developed nation with her vast human and other resources yet we are called developing nation.
The earlier we realize it the better lest the labour of our heroes past will be in vain.
Any form of leadership that has no maximum concern for the people and production is not leadership.
It’s time to look inward and realized that the leadership of this nation should be in the hands of a man who is acceptable ,liberal,capable,creative,innovative,energetic,experienced and ready to walk the talk to get Nigeria working again than to allow an individual without initiative to lead us.
Either you want to believe it or not, we are not united. We need an Icon in unity diversity to bring us back together as the good brothers and sisters that we use to be.
Rise and vote the person that can do it not the party. If Atiku Abubakar should be the APC candidate today, I will vote him because he is capable to do the work.
