He maintained that it is true that there are school children that have reached eighteen years and are therefore eligible to register to vote. However, these children he said should not be canvassed by politicians but should be allowed to register to vote with the appropriate authority whose business it is to sensitize all those within voting age to register with NEC.

It could be recalled that in recent months several political parties were found guilty of canvassing pupils’ right inside their school premises and sometimes with tacit or active approval from school authorities. Some of these political parties even went to schools to dish out scholarships and other gifts to children that have reached voting age with promises that they stand to benefit more if they register and vote for the party dishing out the gifts.

It is on record that school children (first time voters) are gullible and some of them fell for this trick which is why Dr. Adonis Aboud who is a philanthropist with passion for children spoke with representatives of the two main political parties about this issue and the way forward.

Dr. Adonis Aboud is the Executive Director of Pikin Bizness a philanthropic organization which has contributed immensely in the treatment of children with heart problems and other serious illness needing urgent surgical treatment abroad. He is also contributing to the education of children through provision of scholarships, schooling and teaching materials for hundreds of children across Sierra Leone.
