The 1st phase of the much anticipated #NigeriaDecides2019 election that happened on Saturday was a success in some parts of Nigeria, and in some, it didn’t quite go as planned.
With the videos and tweets on social media, we can tell that different polling units had different experiences. With mixed feelings, here’s what Nigerian’s are saying about the #NigeriaDecides2019 election.
It ‘meins’ I will sleep here
This video went viral for all the right reasons. She came prepared and wasn’t going to hear any stories until she voted.

May his soul rest in peace
Sadly, this young man amongst others who were allegedly dead, left a lot of Nigerians sad.

Polling unit that went to Harvard
With the kind of chaos in some polling units and the sun others had to withstand to cast their votes, it was not a surprise for some Nigerians to give the polling unit a nickname.

Women who made sure their votes were counted.
We stan that these women wanted to make sure their voices were heard through their votes.
One of my favourite images from the Feb. 23 presidential elections in #Nigeria.
In #Benue State, women at Ako Ward 08 PU 003 staying back until results are announced, ensuring their votes count.

The real MVP
We love us a kind, patriotic Nigerian.
Please who can connect me to this guy? He is the one serving this nation not those men standing in borrowed uniforms.
Please RT so he can see it.
