The Anambra Government has called on eligible voters in the state to turn out en-mass and participate in the forth-coming permanent voter’s card distribution and revalidation exercise.

The Special Adviser to the state governor on political matters, Chief Joe-Martins Uzodike, made the call at Nibo near Awka during a stakeholders meeting involving Presidents-General of communities on Sunday.

Uzodike said that it was important for the state to participate massively in the exercise as its outcome would determine what the state would benefit from the Federal Government.

According to him, about 1.8 million voters were registered in the state previously out of which about 1.3 participated in the previous elections.

“This is the time for the people of the state to actualize their dreams of having the power to vote people of their choice.

“Let us ensure that all those whose names are in the voters’ register collect their permanent voters’ card, while those who have attained 18 years or did not register in the past should do so now”, he appealed.

Uzodike further said that the voter exercise would be used for delineation of constituencies in the state.

The special adviser charged the presidents-general to work with their village heads, councilors and other stakeholders to actualize the success of the exercise.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had announced that distribution of permanent voters’ card would take place from August 15 to August 17.

The commission also announced that the continuous voters’ registration exercise would hold between August 20 to August 25.
