The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Southwest Zone D, has asked all students from higher institutions in the area to take advantage of the ongoing voter registration opportunity to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards, PVC.
NANS Southwest coordinator Emmanuel Adegboye made the call in Ibadan on Wednesday during a press conference.
“It is about time that NANS went beyond activism and harnessed our arsenal of resources to be actively involved in determining who gets what political office.
“Nigerian students must play their civic role in nation-building, and most importantly, have a say in who will be the nation’s president and other electoral offices,” he said.
He said that bringing capture centers closer to students would not only motivate them to register in large numbers, but also reduce the workload on existing capture centers.
He also called on state governments in the Southwest to energize their respective state election commissions and assist INEC in educating voters.
