Ahead of the Anambra governorship election on Saturday, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has advised residents to take their destiny into their hands and come out to cast their votes.
In a thread on his Twitter page, Atiku said the Anambra election for the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, ushers the commencement of the process of rescuing Nigeria from socio-economic and political chaos.
According to him, the Anambra governorship election of tomorrow will be a litmus test for deepening Nigeria’s democracy.
His tweets read: “The Anambra governorship election of tomorrow will be a litmus test for deepening our nation’s democracy via the instrumentality of the vote as against the bullet.
“I hope and expect that INEC is working in concert with security agencies, will provide a conducive environment for the voters to exercise their franchise.
“For us, at @OfficialPDPNig, it will signpost the commencement of the process of rescuing Nigeria from the socio-economic and political chaos it’s been railroaded into.
“The good people of Anambra should take their destiny into their hands by coming out in their numbers to cast their votes.
“Above all, a free, fair, and credible poll will give confidence to the democratic process and engender peace and harmony in the state.“
