All Progressives Congress ( APC) stalwart and legal luminary, Mr. Morayo Lebi has called on the people of Ondo South Senatorial District to participate in the continuous voters registration exercise announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Lebi in a chat with Ondoevents said there is need to rouse people out of their indifference to political development in their environment, stressing that while it is necessary that people have voters card, it is equally important that they file out en mass to vote on election day.
He noted that INEC still has so many unclaimed voter cards and all these cards belong to people who have on their own volition resolved not to activate their civic responsibility on poll’s day.
“I want to urge our people from all the nooks and crannies of Ondo South Senatorial District and the entire Ondo State, who are yet to have the voter cards to take advantage of this exercise now that a new opportunity has been given by INEC for people to participate in the continuous voters registration exercise.
“The population of active voters compared with the total number of available voter cards show political indifference.
“Therefore, I urge all those young people who have just reached the voting age and those far beyond the voting age but up till now have not gotten a voter card to kindly register and get their voting cards,” Lebi stressed.
It would be recalled that Mr. Lebi was the APC flag bearer in Ondo South Senatorial District in the 2015 elections but he lost to the PDP candidate, who had since defected to the ruling in the state.
The Akotogbo born politician from Irele Local Government Area of Ondo State is a key player in progressive politics who has continued to hold firm to the ethos of developmental politics.
