“Elections On Valentine’s Day Will Discourage People From Violence” – INEC

The INEC has said that the placing of the 2015
general elections on Valentine’s day was nothing
more than a coincidence.
Mr. Kayode Idowu, the Chief Press Secretary,
made this known in Abuja, saying it was not
intentional.
”When the commission was taking that decision,
it never even occurred to the leaders of the
commission that it was Valentine’s Day. But then,
it is a day for showing love and if we can show
love that will discourage people from fomenting
violence.
”That will discourage you from being hateful
towards another person on that day. It will make
the election peaceful. So, it is a good
coincidence”.
”The message of the day is to show love for one
another and therefore, there is no basis for
violence, acrimony and being unruly because that
day is a day for showing amenable conduct
towards others.
”So, that should guide the behaviours of voters as
they go out to vote.”
