Leading House of representatives aspirant Rasheed Rasheed Senior (RRS) has urged Osun state citizenry who are of voting age, especially those of Ila, Boluwaduro and Ifedayo federal constituency to take advantage of the public holiday declared by the Osun state government to get themselves registered at the ongoing Continuous voter registration exercise in order to have the chance to vote at the forthcoming elections in the state.
Rasheed Rasheed in a press statement admonished the people of Boluwaduro, Ila and Ifedayo federal constituency to make use of the public holiday not only to get themsekves registered and for those who got registered earlier to change their temporary voter cards to the permanent one.
The statement read in part “this is a great opportunity for the people of Osun state, especially those who desire positive development in Ila, Boluwaduro and Ifedayo federal constituency to troop our enmasse and get themselves registered as this will afford us the opportunity to effect the desired change in our federal constituency.”
The Igbajo born journalist cum politician also advised youths to equip themselves with their PVCs if truly the change desired is to come to reality.
“At this critical period which we find ourselves in our national polity, the clamour for youth involvement in the affairs of state will not and can not be achieved if we are found wanting from the very start of the the political process. It is to this end that we must prepare ourselves ahead for the political battle by securing our Permanent voter cards as this is the first and most important weapon needed in our arsenal to lead the struggle” Rasheed Rasheed Senior submitted
