The seasoned, result oriented and pragmatic Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the African Young Voices Media Empire, Ambassador Anthony Navo Jr has made a passionate plea to Sierra Leoneans at home and abroad to come out and register in the ongoing voters registration exercise in order to be eligible to vote in the 2023 elections.
After completing the registration process on the 28th September 2022 at the Old School Voter Registration Centre at Hill Station, the Ambassador is now all set to cast his votes in the June 2023 multi-tier elections in Sierra Leone.
Narrating his participation in the process at the Old School Center, Amb Navo Jr, said it took him merely 3 to 5 minutes to go through the entire process of registration.
“With the less than 5 minutes that I took at the Centre while waiting to be registered, I noticed a smooth, speedy and easy registration process going on. There were no challenges that I witnessed. What captured my admiration in the Centre was the professionalism of the EC-SL staff and also the peacefulness and calmness of the people in the queue waiting to be registered,” Ambassador Navo Jr. recounted his experience.
He ended by adding his voice to the clarion call made by stakeholders from the EC-SL, ruling and opposition political parties for people to come out and get themselves registered to vote come 2023 elections.
Ambassador Anthony Navo Jr. cut short his United Kingdom (UK) vacation, where he has been resting with his lovely family and returned home early this week to take part in the voter registration process.
“There are millions of Sierra Leoneans out there in the Diaspora who can copy a good example of Ambassador Navo Jr. to come home and get themselves registered if only they are as patriotic as he is,” a senior EC-SL intimated this medium.
