Jigawa – Hadejia Central Primary School Association Class 67/73 has called on the eligible voters in Jigawa state who do not have Permanent Voters Card (PVC) to go and register as it is the only variable tool for electing credible and competent leaders.
The Association made the call in a statement issued to newsmen in Dutse by its Chairman, Alhaji Umar Kaila.
The Chairman said: “Time has passed when citizens will shirk their civil rights and responsibility for a trivial issue, therefore every eligible voter must work toward electing good leaders who can deliver Nigeria to promising land.
The statement added that the association will embark on public sensitization in collaboration with other likes minds to encourage people to go and register before the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, close the registration portal.
“We are also calling on political leaders of other stakeholders to provide logistic support to INEC and a group of youth who will open at least one center in each political ward to facilitate the registration, particularly in rural areas.
“As the 2023 campaign and general election are getting closer, we are calling on political actors to play politics with diplomacy, maturity, and national patriotism for peace, unity, and sustainable development.”
However, the statement called on youth women and the general electorates to think, reflect and decide wisely before voting for any candidate.
Alhaji Kaila charged youth as leaders of tomorrow to shun violence during the campaign and election period, but they shall uphold the national patriotism and work toward making Nigeria a better nation.
He then prays Almighty God, to guide and give wisdom to Nigerian leaders to tackle the social and economic challenges militating the country.
