Nigerians go to polls hoping for better outcome


[FILES] Voters queue

As the elections kick-start today, some Nigerians, including those with PVCs and those who will be disenfranchised due to inability to obtain their PVCs and aparty, would in one way or another contribute to the emergence of a new set of leaders for the next four years.

While the voters expressed enthusiasm to cast their votes, hoping that their votes would ultimately count, those unable to vote lament their fate, blaming the Independent National Electoral Commission and never themselves for not obtaining the PVCs or the system for not being perfect.

For the real voters, they are hoping to have their voices (through their votes) heard and not drown. These are the true and patriotic Nigerians who would have the right to complain when things go wrong and rejoice when they go right.

As for those with PVCs but who chose not to vote, they should remain silent where anything goes right or wrong, for they in no small way will have contributed by abstaining from the process.

Throughout the week, INEC, stakeholders and security agencies have been putting measures in place to ensure a free, fair and transparent process that would lead to credible outcomes. And they are upbeat of a good outing today and beyond.

The electorate on their part, hope for the best possible and they troop out today to elect their leaders from among the over 91 political parties and their numerous candidates.
