Friday, March 10, 2023

“The people’s voice is the voice of God, and as long as that voice is heard, democracy will be alive.

- M.K.O Abiola

(Presumed Winner of the June 12, 1993 Presidential Elections)

Dear ,If you were all set to cast your vote tomorrow, we hate to break it to you, but the Governorship and State House of Assembly elections have been postponed to Saturday, March 18th. We know, we know, you were probably all ready to make your voice heard and cast your ballots, but... And we thought we had escaped postponements this election cycle!

Now, you have an extra week to prepare! Make sure you know were your PU is (for those who were lost on the 25th) and check out those who are contesting to represent you!, you can now plan an even bigger and better election-watching party! Break out the popcorn, crack open a cold one, and get ready to witness history in the making (or, you know, a bunch of people standing in line waiting to vote). 😊
