Hon. Khadija Bukar who spoke with LEADERSHIP Weekend said the additional time given by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) would enable more citizens to be captured in the ongoing Continuous Voter Registration (CVR)
She said it was good to make it a priority to senstitise especially women and youths in the state to get their PVCs in order to vote candidates of their choice in the next general elections.
Khadija also assured that very soon her office would carry out sensitization campaigns on radio and TV stations in the state to mobilise women and youths to get their PVCs to vote in the forthcoming general elections.
She advised citizens to participate fully in the registration exercise and urged women and youths who are yet to get their PVCs to take full advantage of the opportunity to do so, saying no excuse would be acceptable for not getting their PVCs.
