2023: Makinde Charges INEC On Free And Fair Election.

The Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission to ensure Nigerians’ votes count during the forthcoming polls.

The governor made the call when he received the letter notifying him of his election as the Silverbird Communication’s Man of the Year Award.

He added that the electoral umpire must ensure that votes counted and announced results reflect the true decision of Nigerians.

“This is an election season for us and we want to use this opportunity to also tell the electoral umpire, INEC, to allow people’s votes to count. And when people vote, the votes should be counted and let it also count towards the result they will announce,” he said.

While commending the Silverbird management for the honour and the company’s impact on journalism in Nigeria, the governor said, “Silverbird has made an impact in the communication, journalism and electronic space. So, we know that you are not cheap and an award from Silverbird is a huge one. I did not have any difficulty in verbally accepting the award, because it is not a junk type of award.

“So, I want to thank the management of Silverbird and even the people of Nigeria, those people who participated in the voting.
