Nollywood actress Lala Akindoju has dropped her two cents regarding the just concluded presidential election in Nigeria and Bola Tinubu’s victory as President-elect.
Acknowledging the feelings of despair and discouragement that may follow what she called a “sham” of an election, she shared that legal action be taken even if is for the record as it might not yield positive results.
Despite the lack of faith in the electoral process, Lala Akindoju implored young Nigerians to stay strong and continue to fight for a better future.
She also implored Nigerians to go out and vote for the Gubernatorial election as the future depends on it. Lala Akindoju wrote:
“When a sham of an election is upheld and those in authority appear to publicly act like it is the norm and should not be questioned, feelings of despair and discouragement are very normal.
The discrepancies and failings of INEC should be documented and whatever legal things that can be done should be done…even if it is for the record. Many Nigerians across the country didn’t get to vote and many are now more disillusioned than ever, because its almost impossible to believe that Nigeria hasn’t grown past this.
That being said….I really want us not to give up. Especially young Nigerians..the journey to the Nigeria of our dreams has begun. We are in a battle for the soul of our nation and these battles are not won in a year or two or three.
We have to continue speaking up, engaging government, fighting for what is right, building capacity, building a critical mass of like minds and most importantly, holding our leaders accountable.
I know many fear for their lives and may just not find the strength to go vote on the 11th of March. We have zero faith in INEC or that our current leaders care for the safety of the citizens. But, if you have your PVC and you are in Nigeria, please go vote and let us keep exercising our rights from the office of the citizen. We have to refuse to silenced.
In a democracy, it has to be about the people and Nigeria will get there.
Nigeria will survive.
Nigeria will win.”
