A large crowd on Saturday thronged to a meeting of stakeholders in Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State wherein most of the stakeholders spoke glowingly about the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the LP, and Senator Victor Umeh, the Anambra Central senatorial candidate of the LP.The meeting, which was held at Golden Tulip Hotel, Agulu, saw most of the stakeholders commending the giant strides the LP and its candidates were taking in the 2023 general elections.They donated large sums of money, vehicles and other things for the success of the Labour Party in next year’s elections.Speaking on the occasion, Senator Victor Umeh called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to extend voter’s registration nationwide for three more months.He said the extension would enable those that would attain the age of 18 years before next year’s elections to get registered and participate in the polls.The former APGA national chairman made the call while speaking to journalists at the weekend in Agulu, Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State.According him, the extension would enable Nigerians who would attain 18 years from July 31, 2022,to get their voter’s cards and exercise their franchise during the elections.He said, “I am not opposing the decision of the electoral body, but I am only appealing, because the election is February to March 2023; that is 7-8 months. So there is still time for the process,” Senator Umeh said while commending INEC for the huge success of the exercise.
