The statement reads in full ‘ On behalf of Good Governance Ministry (GGM) ,I wish to appreciate Judiciary for coming to the aid of the masses. With the court order stopping INEC from ending voter registration by 30th of June , Judiciary has shown that our democracy has come to stay. The Ministry has few days ago instructed her legal team to commence legal action against INEC on the same issue of ending voter registration. GGM has noted during her on the spot assessment on the performance of continuous voter registration exercise, that INEC Staffers handling voter registration were not meeting the expectation of the Nigerians who were determined to participate in next year general election . Now that Nigerians have shown interest in Nigeria electoral process , everything humanly possible in line with the electoral laws ,should be done to discourage voter apathy. GGM will continue with voter education both online and offline until political power is returned to the people. The era of career politicians is fast going out of fashion including money politics. GGM is leading ballot revolution that will pave way for brand new political class around political power equations’ the message concluded.
Chinedu Asuzu ,however encouraged all Nigerians to go for PVC as if their lives depend on it. Asuzu noted that there were millions of voter cards already printed waiting for collection in INEC offices across the Country.
