WARRI__Comrade Ozobo Austin, Delta state house of Assembly candidate of Nigeria Peoples Congress, NPC, has said he will boost Burutu absymal voting strength when elected come March 2, 2019.
He added that Burutu voting strength was once a determining factor in the political arena of Delta state in the recent past and that bad representation was the cause of the Burutu poor voting strength.
He assured that when elected he would make free boats available, set aside fund, make surplus INEC registration machines for all wards of Burutu to increase her voting strength from 99000 to atleast 170,000 register voters and the fall of Burutu voting strength if not checked may put Burutu behind in Delta state politics.
The activist enumerated other factors that may have contributed to the fall in Burutu voting strenghth , such as poor political awareness amongst the rural dwellers, inadequate voter’s registration machines, poor transport system and lacks of enlightenment or sensitization campaigns about voter’s registration in Burutu LGA.
Ozobo said he would take drastic steps to ensure that all the interrior villages get registered. “I will mobilize and make it convenient for Burutu citizens in diaspora to go to their various homes to register in the next voter’s registration exercise “
