Veteran stand-up comedian, Francis Agoda, popularly known as I Go Dye, has urged the President, Major General Muhamnadu Buhari (ret’d) to ensure he conducts free, fair and credible elections for Nigerian on Saturday general elections noting that it would bestow honour on his unborn generation.
I Go Dye made this urge through an open letter written to President Buhari ahead of Saturday, February 25 general elections.
The motivational speaker stated that the President owes the citizens credible elections which would attract honour to his descendants from future generations.
He implored Buhari to do all necessary things to conduct credible elections to protect his reputation adding that he should ensure the 2023 elections are not truncated in any way.
He stated further that history would be kind to Buhari if he could give Nigerians the best legacy ever, by upholding the due process of the election and delivering to them the dividends of democracy.
According to the letter, “DON’T LET ANYONE USE YOU TO TRUNCATE 2023 ELECTIONS PASS A GOOD NAME OF HONOUR TO YOUR CHILDREN AS DESCENDANT OF A GREAT MAN. THAT WILL BE ONE OF THE GREATEST GIFT FOR THIS GENERATION FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS
“Your excellency, Firstly, as a citizen of this great country and Goodwill Ambassador for Fight Against Corruption, I write you as we walk towards the polls.
“I feel the pains like majority of Nigerians who are expecting a better Nation at this trying times, nature has bestowed you a great opportunity to conduct this general elections that will determine the fate of Nigerians, once again.
“I want to remind you that you were voted in 2015 as a man of repute by majority of Nigerians and you owe us a deep sense of responsibility in these regards.
“As it stands today you are the only General left in our democratic system who was part and active at the civil war, so nature has given you the opportunity to unite this Nation and lead a new path into greatness by establishing the fact that voters are not induced or being intimidated.
“Your legacy in this direction will write your name in the hearts of men, whereby generations unborn will live to honour your offsprings as Noble descendents of a great man. So don’t let anyone lure you to truncate the election this is one of the greatest gift you can pass to this generation.”
I Go Dye, the social crusader also called on the president to tackle the naira scarcity, noting that the Central Bank of Nigeria naira redesign policy has inflicted pains on the masses.
He said, “As an Eminent global diplomat for peace advocate, I want to advise that the majority of Nigerians are having difficulties accessing their hard-earned funds because 70% of Nigerians are Artisans who live on daily micro transactions.
“The hardship is really on the masses not on the political class so after the presidential election the new money can be circulated. The citizens have taken the pains upon themselves with the hope of free and fair elections that will afford Nigerians a president of their choice inspite of the circumstances with belief for a better future.”
Concluding his letter, the Goodwill Ambassador for Fight Against Corruption charged the electorates to come out en-mass on election day to vote for their preferred candidates.
He stated, “I also call on Nigerians and the youths to take their destiny in their hands and sow a seed of progress by coming out to vote peacefully we all have the capacity to make a difference. As we hope for a better future as a Nation. Amb Francis Agoda.”
