Voters’ Registration Exercise in Achalla

Written By Emmanuel Ojiego

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has commenced two days of voters’        registration in Anambra State. The exercise which kicked off Monday May 8 took place in rural and urban areas of the state. It was gathered that students came out in numbers to be part of the exercise, though a number of them were doing so without election in mind.

In Achalla, Awka North Local Government Area, where some students of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, COOU, were residing, the exercise went on smoothly. The registration kick started at about 9.am with not less than 100 participants in which the population were more of students.

In an interview. a student who simply identified himself as Moses,  expressed joy to be exercising his rights as a citizen by participating in the exercise, stating that he had come earlier in the morning at about 5a.m just to secure a queue number for himself.

It was gathered that most participants of the exercise came just to impress either their parents/guardians or their religious heads of various churches who urged them to exercise their rights as citizens if Nigeria to make it a better place.

Well the good thing is that students are participating in the exercise no matter what the reason is. With time such students will understand why it is good to have a voter’s card. Don’t you think so?
