VOTERS REGISTRATION EXERCISES IN MBOSI
IN JANUARY/ FEBRUARY 2011.
Though this exercise commenced late in
Mbosi due to late arrival of the Registration Equipment and Materials, the
exercise was reasonably successful as most indigenes were registered within the
period allowed by INEC and the Government. About 2600 persons in Mbosi were
registered at the close of the registration. Compare this with about 2.01
million people that registered in Anambra State.
We hereby thank all those,
especially the Onowu, Dr. C.A. Ezike, Messrs. Arthur Ojinnaka, Vincent Aladi and
others who provided accommodation and other logistics support for the INEC
Registration officials while the exercise lasted. Special thanks also to Chief
Obiorah Ifeanyi, Barr. Allen Onyema, Chief Jude Onyedum, Engr. Chuma Ezeyi,
Chief Oliver Ohazumihe, Mr. Titus Uchendu and Mr. Christopher Nwachukwu and the
State Government, who donated/granted various sums of money towards the success
of the exercise.
We equally extend our gratitude to
Hon. Theo Nnorom and his group for the Radio/Newspaper/TV exposure and
publications of our position and plight during the period.
