“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 proof 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 said.
