Sen. Jarigbe Agom-Jarigbe (Cross River North) has expressed optimism that the will of Nigerians will prevail as they cast their votes on Saturday to elect President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that more than 93 million people are registered to vote for the next president and members of the National Assembly in Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly (NASS) elections.
Agom-Jarigbe said after casting his vote at St. Michael’s Primary School, Nkum-Rede ward that the process was peaceful.
He acknowledged the efforts security personnel were putting in to ensure peaceful conduct of the elections.
“So far, there is absolute peace in my polling unit at Nkum Rede ward. No bullying, no intimidation, and no harassment.
“From what I have seen so far, it seems the democratic will of the people is going to prevail and I am happy about it.
“I commend the security agencies because I can see what they have been doing since Friday.
“I implore them to continue what they are doing so that there will be peace and no bloodshed,” the senator said.
