“It is because of the importance that the state government attaches to the ongoing voter registration exercise across the country.


“It is hoped that the officials will return this good gesture by ensuring that they participate in the exercise,” Bilal said.

The acting service chief also instructed all essential service providers in the state to remain on high alert.

Recall that Governor Buni, through his special adviser on political and legislative issues, Aji Yerima Bularafa, expressed concern about the low collection of PVCs by voters in the state.
