Ini Edo, a veteran actress, has launched a campaign encouraging women to vote in the upcoming Ekiti state elections.
The Nollywood actress was shown in Yoruba clothing speaking to women about the power of their vote and engagement in elections and politics in a video she uploaded on her Instagram page.
The video, which is aimed to educate women about their right to vote, is also an effort to end violence against women in politics, which is referred to as ‘VAWIP’ in the video, and Ini Edo gave a speech to that effect.
On election day, the 40-year-old Akwa-Ibom native told Ekiti women that their vote represents their voices and that they should use it to the utmost extent possible.
“EKITI WOMEN, VOTING IS NOT ONLY YOUR RIGHT BUT YOUR POWER! YOUR POWER TO GET BETTER HOSPITALS, GOOD SCHOOLS FOR YOUR CHILDREN, AND GOOD ROADS.
“GO OUT IN MASS TO YOUR POLLING UNIT ON THE 18TH OF JUNE 2022 AND LET YOUR LEADERS HEAR YOU AS YOU VOTE FOR YOUR PREFERRED CANDIDATE. YOU CAN MAKE A CHANGE IF YOU VOTE. #EKITIDECIDES2022.”
