The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Southwest Zone D, has called on all students in higher institutions to use the opportunity of the ongoing voter registration to get their Permanent Voter Cards, PVCs.
Comrade Emmanuel Adegboye, the Southwest coordinator, made the call in Ibadan on Wednesday during a press conference.
In his words: “It is high time that NANS went beyond activism and tap into our arsenal of resources so as to get actively involved in the determination of who gets what political office.
“Nigerian students must perform their civic role in nation building, most importantly, have a say on who will be the nation’s president and other electoral positions,”
Comrade Emmanuel also urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to facilitate capturing centers for the PVCs on campuses.
He added that bringing capturing centers nearer to the students would not only motivate them to register in large numbers but also at reduce workload on existing capturing centers.
