A Non-Governmental Organisation, Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vanguard has called on Lagos residents to go out en-masse and participate in the ongoing voters registration exercise.

The group’ State coordinator, Seyi Bamigbade said this in Alimosho area of the state during the official integration of some political groups into the group, saying the only way Lagosians can return Governor Ambode to office is for them to register to vote and give him more votes in the 2019 general elections.

Bamigbade noted that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had since 27th April, 2017 rolled out the continuous voters registration (CRV) exercise across the country, which was intended to afford all eligible citizens, 18 years and above, who did not register in previous exercise the opportunity to do so at their convenience. He encouraged all eligible residents to register at the INEC office in the local government headquarters and other officially designated areas across the state nearer to them.

He revealed that the Alimosho for Ambode Poverty Alleviation Empowerment programme fits into the All Progressive Congress (APC) policy, as it was designed to empower people to go into small-scale businesses.
