“Voting is not only a right, but a privilege. We must take it seriously, exercise it, and make sure our voices are heard.“

Dear Active Citizen,
Tomorrow's a big day for Bayelsa, Imo, and Kogi as they head to the polls. 🇳🇬 Your voice matters, but so does your safety! 🚨 Here's a quick rundown:
😟 Bayelsa's Historical Struggles: Bayelsa has a history of politically orchestrated violence, especially in Nembe, Brass, Ekeremor, and Southern Ijaw.
To our Bayelsa friends, keep a watchful eye and stay safe! 🕵️♂️
🤔 Imo's Impressive Numbers: Did you know Imo boasts a whopping 2.41 million registered voters? That's incredible! However, the security situation is tense due to the activities of armed groups aligned with the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). 🛑 Stay vigilant, Imo!
Please note that there will be no election in 38 Polling Units in Imo State. Click to see the list.
🚨 Kogi's Troubling Trends: Kogi identified as having a propensity for electoral violence, experienced a shocking incident after the general election in March. Reports of 100 INEC staff and an ad hoc official being abducted surfaced. 😨 Scary, right?
👉 The Big Question: Is any politician's ambition worth your blood? 🤔 NO WAY! Your life is priceless.
🙌 Our Urgent Plea: We urge you to vote, but PLEASE, exercise caution. Your safety is our priority. If the risk feels too high, prioritize your well-being. 🤗💙
