Kogi Guber Polls: Group urges Women  to engage Political parties ahead of election

A Non-Governmental Organization Conscience for Human Right and Conflict Resolution (CHRCR), has stressed the need for women groups to engage the participating political parties and their candidates, on issues around women participation in the political process and leadership.


This was contained in statement issued on Friday at the end of a one day multi-stakeholders engagement for Kogi East senatorial district toward the November 11th 2023, governorship election in Kogi State on integrity and community ownership in the fight against corruption at state level in Kogi.


The communique which was signed by the Executive Director of CHRCR Comrade Idris Abdul Miliki also noted that, there is need for participating Political parties to join the legal campaign to reverse the restriction on posting of campaign materials such as Bill boards and posters


He stressed further, that there is need to improve the constant capacity and awareness of citizens on their roles and responsibilities in the Accountability and Anti-Corruption campaigns in elections.


According to him, Citizens must continue to hold elected political leaders accountable, by insisting on community engagements towards the November 11th 2023 elections.


The group noted that, while the demand for issue-based campaigns has always not been upheld by political parties and their candidates, citizen groups must be courageous and bold in demanding for accountability and transparency on elections at State level.

Our Kogi State Correspondent, reports that he called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to as a matter of urgency, engage citizens on where, when and how to collect their Permanent Voters Card (PVC), ahead of the election.


It was gathered that, the stakeholders meeting was organized by the conscience for Human Rights And Conflict Resolution (CHRCR) in partnership with Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC)
