Summary of the Meeting

After a  series of consultations, the Bade community town hall meeting was conducted on May 20,  2022 at Gwio-kura town in Gwio ward, Bade local government, Yobe state. The community leader, religious leader, youth leader, women’s leader, CBOs and PWD were in attendance at the meeting.

The community residents were sensitized on how to engage their community leaders, councilors, legislative and chairman to demand accountability and also how to report issues and monitor government projects around their community for effective service delivery.

The participants were also orientated on the importance of PVC registration and collection. The meeting also serves the purpose of providing relevant information on the CVR process, ranging from new registration, replacement of lost or damaged cards, and transfer of PVC

The community appreciated and welcomed the new development and also requested more of this type of project in their community.

Critical Issues Raised During the Meeting

  • Stakeholders’ engagement
  • PVC registration process 
  • Challenges at the INEC registration center and how to contribute to a better solution at the community level
  • Possible advocacy meeting to INEC offices to request for PVC registration at ward level
