Ugwuanyi seeks increased awareness in voter education
He gave the charge when the Awgu South Constituency Solidarity Movement (ASCSM), led by Kingsley Ogbonna, paid him a courtesy visit in Enugu.
The governor said massive participation of the electorate in the exercise, which would guarantee the choice of their leaders, was the only solution to good governance.
He said the people needed to be mobilised to fully participate in the CVR in order to make their voices heard at the appropriate time and commended members of the constituency for the support they had shown to his administration.
He appealed to them to take the message to every part of their constituency to ensure that they create awareness and made people to be aware of the implications of participating in the CVR.
Ugwuanyi called on those that had earlier registered to ensure that they get their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Speaking, Ogbonna said the people of the area had never had it so good in terms of infrastructure upgrade due to the effective representation they were enjoying.
He noted that political leaders from the area, including the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and Toby Okechukwu had showed uncommon zeal in bringing development to the area.
He cited a 34km link road and the award of scholarship and bursary to students of the area, as some of the gestures they had enjoyed from their leaders and representatives.
He thanked the governor for his support for representative of Awgu State Constituency in the state assembly, Nelson Uduji, who, he said, had done well for the people.
He pointed out that there was a formidable partnership between the state government and other representatives at various levels of government in the state and national level.
“We are here to reaffirm our support for our political leaders. We are aware that the only way we can do this is by sensitizing our people to participate in the CVR.
“What we have in the state which has trickled down to our constituency is a partnership that works. We are happy with our leaders and we have passed a vote of confidence on them,” Ogbonna said.
Uduji had earlier in a meeting appealed to members of the constituency to take the ongoing CVR exercise seriously.
