You can be counted anywhere but can’t vote there, doesn’t make sense – LP’s Yusuf

One of the members of the Obi, Datti Presidential Campaign Council, F.S Yusuf, has insisted that those who obstructed Nigerians residing in their State from voting during the just concluded general elections should not expect them to be counted in their State during the forthcoming national population census.

Yusuf said it didn’t make sense that one could be counted anywhere in the country but couldn’t vote anywhere in the country.

His statement is contained in post via his Twitter handle on Tuesday.

Recall that ahead of the census, the National Population Commission, NPC, had stressed that citizens living away from their states of origin do not need to travel to home for the purpose of the exercise.

It said people would be enumerated at their places of residence.

Isiaka Yahaya, a spokesperson of the commission in an interview on Monday said, “People should stay where they are, to be counted. They are not to move to their states of origin”.

However, Yusuf insisted that he would rather go to his state to be counted than to be disrespected after meaningfully adding to the population of a state.

He wrote, “So you can be counted anywhere in the country, but you can’t vote anywhere in the country. Please, help me make this make sense abeg.

“I’d rather go to my state to be counted because the disrespect you get after meaningfully adding to the population of a state is too… This election opens everybody eyes so no one should feign ignorance here.
