“PUAN is a non-partisan group and very neutral so that electorates would be educated on how to decide on whom to vote for in line with their conscience,” he said.
He added that the sensitization has become necessary because the integrity of Polling Units have been bastardized.
PUAN Secretary-General, Prince Osa Osagie said the powers of PUAN has brought a positive change in the history of Nigeria electoral system.
“At least, we are targeting 5 polling Unit’s ambassadors each in all the voting points in Nigeria to monitor and to give situation reports from all the polling units in the country,” Osagie said.
Osagie urged their members to keep to the rule of the Organization so as to maintain the integrity of PUAN.
The PUAN immediate past state Ambassador, who was elevated to the position of Zonal Ambassador General Southeast Nigeria, Ambassador Ogbuefi Zaccheaus Ifeuwabundidi said PUAN is out to mobilize voters for active participation in politics and other political activities.
