By Tijjani Ibrahim.

The Centre for Information Technology and Development (CITAD) has unveiled a new voter education training manual for public scrutiny ahead of 2019 general elections.

Speaking to journalists, the Acting Executive Director of the centre, Ahmad Abdullahi Yakasai, said the programme, supported by Action Aid International, was organized to let participants make their inputs, suggestions or corrections  to improve the content of the manual before its final production.

He expressed hope that the sensitisation and voter education would be effective so as to record free, fair and credible polls in the next year general elections.

A participant, who represented the state director of National Orientation Agency (NOA), Malama Suwaiba Adamu Salihu, said the participants were invited based on their past experiences in attending previous similar events so as to make their inputs to enrich the quality of the voter education training manual.

Participants were drawn from six (6) local government areas of the state and each local government was represented by three communities.
