A one-day trip to Gamawa to collect PVC is a luxury that Musa Yunusa, a resident of the Kadi-Kadi community in Gamawa local government area of Bauchi State, could not afford despite his willingness to vote in the 2023 polls. He makes an average of N500 daily from firewood.
Left with no means to reach Gamawa, Yunusa becomes desperate to grasp any chance that knocks at his door.
WikkiTimes gathered that traditional rulers in the area sought help from politicians to help Yunusa and others to get their voter cards.
“They gave us money and other welfare packages to mobilize people for PVC collection,” Abdullahi Saleh, Mai Anguwan Dole said, stressing that he had no idea of how their senior traditional rulers were able to source the resources being disbursed.
WikkiTimes gathered that political candidates and political parties partnered with traditional rulers in Gamawa to facilitate PVC registration for residents of remote villages in the area. They deployed different strategies to get prospective voters to pick up their voter cards.
Alhaji Ibrahim Aliyu Kesa, the PDP’s Deputy Chairman of Gamawa Local Government Area, told WikkiTimes that he was satisfied with what the party did in the area to sponsor potential voters to register with INEC.
“I cannot tell you all the strategies we used to influence the people of Gamawa to acquire their PVCs. Sometimes we give money,” he said.
For Bello Sarki Jadori who represents Gamawa at the State House of Assembly, WikkiTimes reliably gathered that he sponsored a social media team of three young and agile men who visit remote communities to enroll potential voters’ personal data into the INEC PVC registration portal before completing physical registration at the INEC office in Gamawa later in the day.
On average, the team, led by Usman Alhaji Bundujaru, captured between 50 and 60 people daily. The team went to four different communities twice each.
“Hon Jadori supported our people in rural communities of Gamawa local government with transportation fares and other logistics to visit the Gamawa INEC office to complete their voter registration,” said Musa Umar, a resident of Gamawa.
While this may appear to be a call to national duty from a neutral standpoint, the politicians and their political parties have a different agenda. They want to use this to gain cheap and undue acceptance from voters.
