The underlying team of the competition however was in sensitizing of everyone attendee/participant to get their PVC(Permanent Voters Card).

This is part of the effort in ensuring that the preferred candidate is voted in by active participation of the youths.

This however debunks claims that a particular political party was being favoured.
