"We have a total number of 988,923 registered voters out of which 754,886 voters have collected their PVCs , while 234,037, representing 24%, are yet to collect their PVCs".

Salami urged registered voters to break away from the culture of long-standing apathy, and participate actively in the 2023 general elections.

"As part of our preparations, INEC had on 12th November, 2022 commenced a nationwide display of preliminary claims and objections, which shall end on the 25th November, 2022.

"Therefore, I want to use this medium to call on registered voters to visit our local government headquarters to actively participate in the exercise using our online link".
