Accept Election Results – President Jonathan Urges Politicians

President Goodluck Jonathan has urged candidates in the Saturday, April 11, 2015 state elections around the country to respect the will of the people and accept the result of the election.

Speaking via his official Facebook page, President Jonathan urged Nigerians to come out in their numbers to exercise their civic responsibility without fear as he has directed security agencies to ensure the safety of life and property.

He wrote: “As Nigeria returns to the polls tomorrow, I encourage all registered voters to come out en masse and exercise their right to vote. I have instructed our security agents to fully facilitate the right of Nigerians to choose leaders of their choice at the gubernatorial and assembly levels by remaining non partisan and ensuring that we all vote in a secure environment. Because of their sacrifice in securing our nation, we can all be confident to come out and vote our conscience all over the federation. 
I urge contestants to respect the will of the people as we promote a new Nigeria that is a pacesetter and light bearer in the practice of democratic politics without bitterness. May God bless Nigeria.”
