Governor Obaseki Urges Nigerians Not To Sell Their PVCs
Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo has urged Nigerians not to sell their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) ahead of the forthcoming general elections.
Mr Obaseki made the call at the 26th edition of the Auchi Day Celebration of Allah Most High in Auchi, Edo.
Mr Obaseki, represented by his deputy, Philip Shaibu, said that Nigeria had no basis for the current economic hardship, security challenges, and people living in abject poverty.
“2023 election is very crucial, so I appeal to Nigerians, particularly the good people of Edo, to make good use of their PVCs, starting from February 25, to elect God-fearing people in positions of authority.
“If you are a registered voter and you have not collected your PVCs, go and collect your card from the nearest Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office.
“And If you have it already, don’t sell it to ‘selfish politicians’, who will want to mortgage our future,” Mr Obaseki said.
The governor commended the Otaru of Auchi, Aliru Momoh, for ushering peace, unity and development in the Auchi Kingdom.
He urged the people of the community to continue fostering peace and unity.
