Grant Students Break To Vote, Sowore Urges FG
The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, has joined Nigerians in calling on authorities to allow students to go on break to vote in the forthcoming general elections.
Sowore in his call urged the Ministry of Education through the Federal Government to grant students at least a weeklong break to vote during the election.
The election which is barely a few weeks away from now has gathered reactions in the political quarters of the country with lots of anticipations and hallucinations over who will eventually clinch the number one office in the land.
At least 3.5 million students with voters’ cards but have their polling stations outside their schooling domains may be disenfranchised from the voting exercise due to their inability to reach out to their respective polling stations.
As the case may be schooling authorities in the country may not be reflecting on allowing the already registered students to holiday with regards to the 2023 polls.
Many have already expressed concerns about the development with knocks on the tertiary institutions for lack of enthusiasm on the matter.
The human rights activist who is one of the contenders in the 2023 presidential race has been championing Nigeria’s educational system’s address in his blueprint, whose aim is for full enrolment for all children at the primary and secondary school level, among others.
