“There has not been an election in which we recorded above 25 million to 30 million but in this election, we are looking at a minimum of over 50 million votes because every youth wants to vote,” he said.
Enekwe attributed the meteoric rise in demand for Permanent Voter’s Card to the amendment in the Electoral Act and quality of options as candidates.
He said this was the first time Nigerians saw a candidate who looked like who will work for their interest and were willing to express their minds in the election.
According to him, there is an improvement in INEC’s way of conducting elections as a result of the revised Electoral Act which makes room for use of BVAS and electronic transfer of results.
“Nigerians now believe that whatever result that is generated at the polling unit will make sense to the final result that will be announced.
“Nigerians have seen something different from the quality of candidates that political parties have presented to them to vote for.
“It’s no longer news that the Labour Party, through Peter Obi, has become a household name, even a sitting governor was saying recently that Nigerians want fresh alternatives, they are now obedient.
“Our people are tired of how the system is running; nobody has been talking about the challenges of the country and possible solutions to them but Peter Obi,” he said.
