2023: CSOs calls for more sensitization of grassroots

The Executive Secretary of the Caritas Nigeria, Reverend Father Uchechukwu Obodoechina says 2023 general election will be a huge success if the stakeholders in the electoral process worked together.

Father Obodoechina stated this in Abuja during the Caritas National Pre Election Dialogue.

He said collaboration of stakeholders was imperative, due to the findings made when his organisation carried out a risk assessment research in the six geo political zones of the country.

He noted that the research helped the officials of the INEC, Observers, the Media, and other duty bearers to be deliberate on how they go about their duties on election day.

Reverend Father Obodoechina therefore urged Nigerians to come out and vote for credible persons on election day .

In a goodwill message, the Coordinator, Centre for Citizens with Disabilities, Mr David Anyaele promised that his organisation would take appropriate measures to deploy Persons with Disabilities to participate in the forthcoming elections.

Mr Anyaele urged the citizens to also hold political leaders accountable based on their promises and manifestos.

The Coordinator, Justice Development and Peace Commission Abuja, Mr Timothy affirmed that his organization mobilised the youths to register for their Permanent Voters Card, PVC.

A political scientist, Professor Emeka Aniagolu urged Nigerian youths to come out en mass to exercise their franchise and urged INEC to carry out adequate public enlightenment to carry people at the grassroots along in the electoral process.

Country Director, Action Aid Nigeria, Mrs Ene Obi said INEC urged stakeholders and the electorates to work together and help the Electoral Body succeed.
