The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) senatorial candidate for

Imo East in the 2023 general election, Mr Chyma Anthony, has hailed

the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to extend the ongoing continuous voter registration (CVR) exercise initially slated to end at the end of June, 2022.


Anthony was reacting to the statement by the chairman of the House of

Representatives Committee on Electoral Matters, Hon Aishatu Jibril

Dukku, who disclosed this while briefing lawmakers on the committee’s

efforts to ensure the implementation of a House resolution yesterday in Abuja.

In a statement he issued in Abuja, Anthony said the decision to extend the registration date is a welcome development

and urged youths of Imo East senatorial district and Imo State to take advantage of the extension to get registered to enable them participate in the 2023 general election.


He urged INEC to ensure that more men and equipment are deployed to

speed up the capturing time and to reduce fatigue among the eager

Nigerians willing to be part of the electoral process next year.


“This is a golden opportunity for our people especially our youths

that have shown unprecedented enthusiasm in the 2023 general elections.


“I want to charge all the youths of voting age in Imo East (Owerri

Zone), Imo State and all over Nigeria to come out for this important

exercise if they truly are hungry for good governance and better future,” said Anthony.


The APGA candidate also cautioned youths against selling their votes

to politicians who do not mean well for them.
