Pretty Nollywood actress, Eve Esin has shared her thoughts on the upcoming
general elections. Here’s what she wrote:
As Elections 2015 beckon, my heart grieves as I daily read about the
increasing spate of violence among youths; the uncouth languages of
politicians and social media bickering among, otherwise, buddies over
where the pendulum of power should swing.
It is 12 days to the presidential election and as we look forward to that
day, I am writing to all my fans and Nigerian youths in general to go to
the polling units to cast their votes peacefully and when the results of the
elections are released, please, accept the outcome and move on. If you
believe that your candidate was cheated, please, let them go to the court
to seek redress. Violence will solve nothing. Instead, it would claim
innocent and promising lives while properties would be destroyed.
To the politicians, I believe anyone who decides to seek elective position
does so because they want to serve. If, for any reason, the people you
aspire to serve turn their backs on you at the polls, please, accept this in
good faith and gird your loins for future elections. If you feel cheated,
kindly do the right thing by seeking redress in the law court and encourage
your supporters not to shed blood or destroy properties.
Finally, February is a time to love and in all we do, let’s remember to love
our neighbours as we love ourselves because each time we do, we make
God happy. Thanks for being there for me; your love motivates me to keep
giving my best. Keep loving right and keep buying Nigerian movies.
God bless you
