Cross River State governor, Senator Liyel Imoke, has charged Cross Riverians and other Nigerians resident in the state to turn out en mass to exercise their civic responsibility in the Presidential and National Assembly election scheduled for Saturday, March 28.

Governor Imoke who made the charge in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Christian Ita, in Calabar, said their votes were an important tool in determining the future of Nigeria, whether to move forward or backward.

According to Governor Imoke, Nigeria was already on a path of greatness and it is critical that every Nigerian turns out on Saturday and vote to sustain this momentum of growth already begun by President Goodluck Jonathan.

His words: “The Presidential and National Assembly elections coming up tomorrow offer us a unique opportunity as Nigerians to decide where our country is headed. It is either that we vote wisely to move forward or do otherwise and move backward or remain stagnant as a nation. The power to do this is in our hands and that is why tomorrow becomes very crucial in the choice we make.”

While urging voters not to allow themselves to be used by desperate politicians to perpetrate violence before, during and after the elections, Governor Imoke said: “Like our President, Goodluck Jonathan has always stressed, no office or election is worth the blood of any Nigerian. Therefore, we must not allow ourselves to be used by politicians who do not mean well for us to commit violence. Such politicians must be told in bold terms that they are not civil enough to represent you.”

The governor assured that the state government has put everything in place in terms of security to ensure that the polls are peaceful, even as he urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to guarantee Nigerians credible polls.
