Whether you care or not, you still need to make your vote count for the right candidate of your choice. Only you can do it.

Every well meaning Nigerian should be resonable enough on which candidate they vote for, or else Nigeria will become a sharia country. They spoke openly about it and they are very serious on their mission.
