Members of the organization were welcomed into the market by the Baba-Loja of Mandate Market, Alhaji Babaita alongside members of the market leadership.
Team KPMO led by its Focal Person, Usman Lade disclosed that “the purpose of the exercise is to appeal to the people to go out and get their permanent voter card if they have never registered before while urging those who have never registered before, those who just turned 18, people wishing to transfer from one voting location to another or have replacement for lost cards to also take advantage of the ongoing exercise to do so as this will enable them to participate fully in the 2023 general elections.”
During the sensitization programme, members of the Hausa Community, Mandate Market unanimously endorsed Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq for a second term in office for entrenching peace and good governance as well as his accommodating gesture in governance.

One of the market women who identified herself as Salamtu from Ilorin East said “Women in this market have benefited one way or the other through the initiatives of this Government and we’ll continue to encourage our people to get their voters card to so they can return Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq for second term.
