Ezeemo, NOA sensitize Nigerians on power of one vote


The National Orientation Agency (NOA) Anambra State, in collaboration with Charity Ezeemo Trust for the Less Privileged is organizing the launch of a 10 month grassroot sustained sensitization programme on Voter Education  in Anambra State entitled: The power of One Vote. 

This programme was born out of the need to improve on the participation of the electorates and the need to re-orientate the Anambra electorates to shun all vices that have marred the electoral process in the past.  These include; voter apathy, or lack of interest to participate in elections; all forms of electoral malpractices and violence, including ballot paper snatching, thuggery, intimidation by security personnel; financial inducements; such as, selling of voter’s card, selling of votes and conscience, collecting of food items or food stuffs; emerging sectoral /denominational bias in choice of candidates etc.

In the light of the above, there is an urgent need to educate our people on value-re-orientation to enable them to own and drive the process of elections in the state.

The general public are therefore, urged to avail themselves of the opportunity of the oncoming programme and attend the launching.  There will be lecture presentations to teach the people what they need to know, while people will also have opportunity to interact and ask mind boggling questions bordering on elections.
