Nigerians will be going to over 120 thousand polling units scattered all over the country to select their next president in less than 10 minutes.
There has been vigorous campaigning and unfortunately name callings from all sides involved prior to this date.
I am sure everyone involved is passionate about the progress of this country called Nigeria.

The cheaps are down and accreditation will begin in 10 minutes time in most polling units.

It will be nice to know what is happening in your polling unit.

Videos and pictures are welcome.

God bless Nigeria!

Nigeria: Whatever happens after the election, remember, the greatest commandment is love!
My Generation: We have started, we can't stop now, this is meant to be a 4yrs marathon, not the current 4 months dash we have engaged in. Let's continue to be relevant.
My Adversaries: You made me read, made me research, and made me debate. Thanks for making me better. If we win, we will need you. If you do, you will us.
My Comrades: I never knew you were so bright, so informed, so loaded, so innovative, so amazing. BB 2011 made me know you, and now, there is no stopping us! WE must continue to work together to make sure Nigeria is totally saved. I love Nigeria! I love you

I think it applies to many here and directed at all.

One love!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@Agaba, you are encouraging people to post videos and pictures if necessary. Hope you are not going to start asking them to provide proof of the people in the vids or pics, as you did in the other thread that shows a woman thumb printing (riigging) ballot papers.

People are trickling in . .doing their accreditation and going home  . .so the polling area is largely scanty because people are not staying behind. . .the true picture will be revealed by 12:00 pm . .but in all, people are geared up to go out, and the turn out will be high , that am so sure of . . Lagosians are not taking it lightly  grin grin

I've done my accreditation an hour ago at the polling center in my area, it was early, orderly and peaceful . Though the turnout was low compared to last weeks NASS election but from interaction with some neighbours i learnt they intend going for accreditation and voting d same time instead of going and coming back to vote.

A General who weeps in public does not have the charisma to lead,
An aspirant who is easily swayed to step down for another, lacks
confidence,
Since he can,we can with GEJ, the change we can see,

I'm watching the crowd at Katsina on AIT. It is massive and very disorganized. I hope INEC can handle accreditation there.
