Frontline politician of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Barr. Morayo Lebi, has outlined some of the importance of voters registration and how it impacts the decision-making process of the electorates.
The party stalwart and Legal Luminary called on the good people of Ondo South Senatorial District to endeavour to take advantage of the continuous voters’ registration.
He said the indigenes should actively participate as Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has announced kicking off the exercise in Ondo State.
Barrister Lebi in an exclusive interview in the state said there is a need to rouse people out of indifference to political development in their environment.
He said that while people must have voters cards, it is equally important to file out en mass to vote on election day and participate in the electronic voting process.
He noted that INEC still has so many unclaimed voter cards that belong to people who, of their own volition, resolved not to activate their civic responsibility on poll’s day.
APC on Importance of Voters Registration
While elaborating on the importance of voters registration, APC stalwart Lebi urged people from all the nooks and crannies of Ondo South Senatorial District and the entire Ondo State, who are yet to have the voter cards, to take advantage of this exercise.
He noted that INEC had given a new opportunity for people to participate in the continuous voters’ process, adding that the population of active voters compared with the total number of available voter cards shows political indifference.
It will be recalled that Barr. Lebi was the APC flagbearer in Ondo South Senatorial District in the 2015 elections. Still, he lost to the PDP candidate, who had since defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
The Akotogbo born politician from Irele Local Government Area of Ondo State is a crucial player in progressive politics who has continued to hold firm to the ethos of developmental politics.
