Nollywood actress, Ini Edo has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to be accountable and transparent during result collation in Saturday’s governorship and State House of Assembly elections.
She also urged them to put their integrity to work.
Speaking after casting her vote at unit 2 Awa Iman ward 1, Onna local government area, Akwa Ibom State, Edo said it would not be fair to allow the wrong people govern the state or for the peoples’ votes not to count.
She observed that many voters did not turn up for the elections as experienced using the presidential election.
“I expect INEC to be accountable and put their integrity to work for once. Looking at the social media, you will see a lot of irregularities and Nigerians have totally lost confidence in INEC; it’s very unfortunate.
“So, I’m hoping that to some level, they should be able to prove themselves worthy. I encourage them to do the right thing because the world is watching and besides, this state/country is ours, we can’t afford to leave it in the hands of the wrong people. If not, we will have ourselves to blame,” she stated.
