Rise up to ensure your votes count, US Ambassador tells Nigerians


Ahead of the general elections, the United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Stuart Symington, has called on Nigerians to work together and ensure that their votes count.

Mr Symington stated this in a broadcast which was shared on his Twitter handle on Tuesday.

He said, “It is absolutely important for the citizens of Nigeria to personally take part in the elections beginning right now by making sure they know what their rights are.

“It is very important that you work together to ensure your votes count”.

Symington further stated that the US expects a free, credible, transparent and peaceful exercise.

He asked Nigerians to use the elections as an opportunity to express their civil right.

“As we get ready for your elections, one of the most important things is that there is level playing field, meaning that no officials, no security forces, no electoral officials, no politicians seek to influence you in a way that is not consistent with Nigerian law.
