Former President Goodluck Jonathan has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission to correct the inherent challenges facing the ongoing election in Bayelsa.
He spoke when he, accompanied by his wife and some aides, was accredited at Ward 13, Unit 039 in Otuoke, Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
Mr. Jonathan said it was only by addressing the challenges, especially the malfunctioning of card readers, that the election would be described as transparent and credible.
He urged voters to be calm and peaceful as they exercise their civil duty to the country.
“My only suggestion and advice is that people must be calm because it is a duty to perform for your country. I call for peaceful election and transparent and credible election. That is the hallmark of democracy.”
