Will Warri Vote?

On Thursday, 15th of February The New Warri Organisation held an online discussion. It was a tweet chat on the electoral response in Uvwie, Warri South, and Udu Local Government Area.

At every turn is a call to get your PVC, why? because the people are dissatisfied by the way various administrations has piloted the affairs of the country and everyone want genuine change and the only weapon to effect this change is by getting your voters card.
Getting your voters card is not even enough, as it has become obvious that eligible voters with permanent voters card don't turn up to vote during elections. According to former INEC Chairman Professor Attahiru Jega, speaking before the last general election, he noted that Delta State has received well over two million PVCs, but guess what, the number of voters that came out to vote, was less than two million. Statistics from the last LGA Chairmanship and Councillorship election that was held in Delta state, was less than a million and five hundred voters in the entire state.

This was the rationale behind the tweet chat on the discussion, "Will Warri Vote?" with the same hashtag #willwarrivote.

The tweet chat attracted residents from all parts of the city and those that consider the city home and hold it dear to heart and resides outside the city, we had people participating from Portharcourt, Benin, Lagos, Ghana, and London.

A total of 250 tweets was tweeted with the hashtag from different individuals sharing their thoughts with their tweets. Here are some of the tweets from the discussion.
