#TrackNigeria: A Nonagenarian voter in Kwali, Federal Capital Terrritory, Hajiya Amina Muhammadu, says she is participating in the ongoing Chairmanship and Councillorship elections to ensure a better future for her grand and great grand children.

Muhammadu, who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) after casting her vote at Polling Unit 005 in Kwali township, said education should be the focus of any grassroots leader.

“At age 90, I still come out to participate in general elections of this nature because I believe we can still elect leaders that will cater for the well being of citizens.

“I am so concerned about education of our children and grand children because without it, there won’t be a good future for them.

“I want the winner of this election to provide quality basic education for our children,” she said.

She appealed to whoever emerged as the area council’s chairman to provide quality healthcare service to the people in the area.

The 90-year-old woman who said she had been voting since the return of democracy in the country, expressed happiness for being alive and to participate in the 2019 general elections.

“I trust my people. I know they will vote for only people that have capacity to deliver,” she stressed. (NAN)
