With the presidential poll overdue us , let us not wilt complacent , and goof to vote in the gubernatorial poll.

The forthcoming elections are as important for good governance as that of the presidency and the National Assembly.

Indeed , governance at the state level is closer to us , and should touch our lives increasingly directly. That is why it is vital for us to participate in the nomination of who governs us at the state levels.

I , therefore , urge you to troop out massively on Saturday to elect your governors and state lawmakers.

As a member of the All Progressives Congress ,

I recommend those standing on the platform of the party to you , as we are guided by progressive ideals , and we will not disappoint you.

Equally , I urge you to comport yourself properly , as you turn out for the election.

Let make the gubernatorial polls , much largest than the presidential , which Local and International observers have adjudged to be self-ruling and fair.

May I repeat my request to our young people: do not indulge yourselves to be used to rationalization violence or to unravel the law or otherwise disturb the peace.
