FG Urges Citizens To Participate Actively In Electoral Activities
The National Orientation Agency (NOA) has urged citizens to eschew apathy and participate actively in electoral activities.
Director of the Agency in Oyo State, Mrs Dolapo Dosunmu, made the call while addressing residents of Egbeda and Ajorosun areas during a sensitisation on voter education, at Monatan, Ibadan.
The theme of the programme is “Strengthening Political Participation for Grassroots Development”.
”Our people should take both council polls and general elections as priorities through active participation.
”Voting apathy is inimical to democratic governance; so, eligible voters should endeavour to come out and vote during elections.
”Those that have registered but yet to collect their permanent voter card should go to INEC office to do so while those that are yet to register should go and register.
”Also, our people should know that our democracy in Nigeria does not need violence, thuggery or any electoral violence.
”But, they need to obey rule and regulations guiding electoral processes so as to have peaceful and successful elections,” Dosunmu implored.
