This will require you to go and look any form of identification such as your village Councillor to recognize you and sign the form for you in order to prove you are from that local government.

The process is really stressful because you will have to go to the chairman section to look for your village councilor where you will pass through some difficult questions such as who is your father, your grand father, your father street address, how long do you often visit the village e.t.c.

You don’t have to be worried much when you are told to go look for your village councilor to sign for you if you can defend yourself because it not difficult to find your village councilor, he or she is still around the premises, all you have to do is go and look for him/her office.
