Your Excellency, the process will surely be cool and safe because you're the vice president of the republic. But in other places it's not smooth at all. Anyways, Allah bless and guide all leaders.

I'm also waiting for the EC to commence ours in my hometown. Indeed, It is my civic responsibility to register so as to vote in the impending 2020 election.
@Abeduma Elisha decried the non-adherence to COVID-19 protocolsat other centres
In most registration centers, the Covid-19 protocols are not observed. You politicians can pretend the right things are being done; after all you value the power more than the lives of those you seek power from.
