The 2019 general elections are approaching, with barely 36 days away.
Nigerians are gearing up to cast their votes; or at least troop to their various polling units to register their presence and observe the elections.
While many Nigerians are not yet sure of who to cast their votes for in the presidential elections, many may have already made up their mind on who they’ll give their mandate to be the president for the next four years.
For those who may not have the list of candidates contesting for the number one position in the land and the party they represent, we’ve compiled the names for you. (See list below)
The general elections are not a do or die affair. Please let us shun violence!
Don’t sell your vote for a piece of cake. Remember, the choice you make now will affect your life in Nigeria for the next four years, or more.
If you have your PVC, we encourage you to go out on the day of elections and peacefully cast your vote for your preferred candidate. And if you don’t have your PVC yet, kindly go to the Ward where you registered to collect yours.
This is your civic responsibility. It is your right. Don’t waste it!
