The Igala Cultural and Development Association (ICDA), an influential socio-cultural group in Kogi East Senatorial District, has called on Igala people in all the nine local governments that formed the eastern senatorial districts of Kogi State, to troop out in their numbers to vote in the 2023 elections.
This was contained in a statement issued on Wednesday and signed by the Caretaker Committee Chairman of the group, Dr Ahmed Abdullahi and made available to newsmen in Lokoja.

“The presidential election is slated for Saturday, February 25, while the governorship and state Houses of Assembly elections are scheduled to hold on March 11, 2023.
“However, in Kogi State, there will be no governorship election, until a later date this year” he stated
The ICDA leader called on all Igala voters to shun violence, and advised the people against exposing themselves to violence during the polls.
