INEC solicits media support in Niger on Continuous Voters’ Registration

By Aminu Garko
Minna –  The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Niger has appealed to media organisations to support the ongoing Continuous Voters’ Registration (CVR) in the state.
Prof. Samuel Egwu, the state Resident Electoral Commissioner, made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Minna on Tuesday.

“I urge that media organisations to deploy all sustainable and effective mass media strategies to mobilise eligible voters to participate actively in the exercise.

“We have reached out to leaders of the two major religions in the state, to mobilise their followers who have not yet registered to do so.
“Those that had earlier registered and had not collected their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) should also come forward for collection in our offices across the 25 local government areas of the state.

“We have also contacted the leaders of various political parties to mobilise more eligible voters to register,” Egwu said.
He said that educating eligible residents on the importance of acquiring (PVC) would enable them to participate in electing their leaders of their choice. (NAN)
