|CEDESER Collaborates With INEC For Voters’ Sensitisation by Adesinaayo: 5:08pm On Feb 04, 2019|
A nongovernmental and public advocacy organisation, Centre for Democracy and Socio Economic Rights (CEDESER) has teamed up with the Independent Electoral Commission INEC, Lagos State to educate the Nigerian voters.
The organisation which embarked on the sensitisation campaign in Ikeja Local Government Area of Lagos encouraged the voters not to allow any situation to disenfranchise them, but to come out on the forthcoming general elections days to perform their civil rights.
The campaign which took the organisation to a good number of popular motor parks and bus stops in the Lagos state capital last weakened saw the organisation telling the people the evils in involving in any act of electoral malpractices. The people were advised not to sell their votes under any reason and should not be involved in ballot stuffing, snatching or any electoral violence.
Speaking in the same vein to the members of Lagos State Artisans and Technician Association at the Ikeja Local Government Secretariat during the campaign, the Executive Secretary, of the organisation, Michael Popoola Ajayi, said every hand must be on deck to ensure the growth of the Nigerian democracy. He encouraged the executives of the association to further educate their members on their responsibilities during and after elections.
Meanwhile as part of the campaign efforts, the organisation also visited some selected churches and mosques in Ikeja and its environs. It used the opportunity to encourage the religious leaders to advise the members of their congregations that haven’t collected their permanent voters’ card PVC to do so at their respective area of registration before the Election Day.
