This will go a long way to ensuring voters participation in elections. "The political parties should engage in civic voter’s mobilization as proactive way of campaign. Priority should be given to the difficult terrains and hard to reach local government areas and communities in the state in terms of distribution of election materials to ensure quick and timely commencement of elections in such areas.
