Orientation agency decries lack of funds for voter education ahead 2015 elections

National Orientation Agency (NOA) said that lack of funds was preventing it from educating the public on the ongoing voter registration and collection of Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) from INEC.

Mr Afam Anene, the agency’s Director of Political and Civic Education, made this known in Abuja on Wednesday while speaking on NOA’s perceived silence on the ongoing processes.


“We’ve been talking about 2015 elections but the problem is a hit and run approach, you do one in one state with the meager fund you have and then you go back and relax, because it is not enough.

“Even if I have 300 million leaflets to share in the whole country it is not enough now, some people may not be able to read; even if you write it in their local languages they are not literate enough to read them.

“So we need to go through the radio, and all the media and then do the traditional media as well; is it not money?

“If I have to go to your village to do the town crier thing, it’s not me who will do it; I have to commission the people who do town crier work in your village to undertake it for me and it’s for a cost.
