My Letter to the People of Bende - A Big Thank You

#PeopleofBende

Dear People of Bende,

I am sure this letter has been expected a while ago. I was waiting for the Certificate of Return from INEC before sending it out. As you all know, the election was like the examination while the Certificate of Return remains the evidence of successful outing. Without the Certificate, I had considered it too early in the day to start celebrating.

Talking about elections in Bende Federal Constituency, many wondered whether a time would come when their votes will count. This has questioned democracy so greatly that a few developed apathy towards exercising their franchise.

On the 23rd of March 2019, many of you overcame their fears, indifference, nonchalant attitude and doubt among others to stand under the rain, lined up in front of ballot boxes across 191 polling units and other voting points. It was possible only because you believed in the difference you so much desired, whose time has come and you chose to play a role in making this history. Thank You!
