A stalwart of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Toyin Amuzu, TA, has advised Patriotic Nigerians, especially those who wish to see a better Country in their lifetime to come out enmasse and register fully with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the ongoing Continuous Voter Registration, CVR which has just commenced Nationwide, to change bad governance and mal-administration in the Country.
Chief Toyin Amuzu while speaking in Abeokuta lamented that Nigerians are fond of complaining without taking adequate actions to correct the ills of the society.
He noted that, this is an all important civic responsibility that every Nigerian who is 18 years and above must perform, to ensure political correctness that can enhance change, for a better society.
He added that Nigerians must stop leaving politics and governance in the hands of mediocre, who have little or no value to add to create an enabling environment, where everyone can thrive without any hindrance.
Chief Toyin Amuzu said, “we all must take special interests in democratic processes to elect credible people who will govern well and be responsible to us as citizens and the Nation at large.
Chief Amuzu also known as ‘TA’ advised youths to get involved actively in the Political process and stop being only online critics, saying ‘the affairs of our Nation must be a priority to all and sundry’.
According to him, “INEC has commenced the CVR ahead of the 2023 General Elections, from 28 June for Nigerians who clocked 18 years after the last exercise conducted in 2018 and those who never registered but are above the constitutionally allowed age grade. This means that as long as one is 18 years old or more and has not registered before, he/she is eligible for this CVR”.
“Infact, INEC said it has launched a dedicated portal for online registration, which will enable Nigerians to commence the registration process online by filling the forms and then make an appointment on the web portal for a date and time to visit an INEC State or Local Government Area (LGA) office to give their fingerprints and complete the registration , unlike the previous years where prospective voters can only queue in various centres to register and obtain their voter’s cards.
Chief Toyin Amuzu said this is a great opportunity to every individual to register and get the voters card, to be able to perform their civic responsibility in the 2023 General elections.
