Kogi State governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, has urged the people of the state to collect their permanent voter’s cards (PVCs) in order to have the opportunity of voting for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
Speaking in Okene, yesterday after picking his PVC at INEC Office, Governor Bello said the PVC is the power of the citizens to ensure continuity of the change, which Nigerians are already witnessing.
“I have no doubt that you want President Muhammadu Buhari to continue beyond 2019. To be able to do that, you need to collect your PVC to be able to vote.
“What I have done here today is to encourage everyone whose PVC is still with INEC to come and collect such in order not to be disenfranchised,” he said.
Governor Bello said the landslide victory of Alhaji Haruna Isah of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the recently conducted bye-election to fill the vacant Lokoja/Kogi federal constituency seat in the House of Representatives, is an expression of confidence in the party.
“As a government, we have continued to defend the interest of the poor and ensure you are proud of us. Our administration has made it easier for APC to clinch all elective positions in 2019.
“We shall continue to concentrate our resources into making education, healthcare, empowerment, job creation and civil service reforms even better in our dear state.
“I am happy that the silent revolution of my administration was handsomely appreciated last Saturday when our people voted massively for the All Progressives Congress”.
Bello thanked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for its impartiality in electoral matters, assuring the commission of his administration’s determination to enlighten the populace to collect their cards.
