The Kebbi State governor, Senator Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, has called on the electorates not to sell their permanent voter cards (PVCs) to any politician.
The governor made the call yesterday during the ongoing All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign rally at Maiyama local government area of Kebbi State ahead of general elections.
Bagudu while counting the numerous achievements recorded by APC both at the state and federal level under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, said electorates should jealously guard their PVCs against unscrupulous politicians who go about buying PVCs.
He urged members of the public to chase away any politician who gives out money to collect PVCs for whatever reason. “Do not sell your PVC, your PVC is your vote and if you sell your PVC, you sell your conscience and you cannot vote for the candidate of your choice during any election,” he added.
The governor advised the electorates to report any politician who attempts to buy PVCs to the appropriate authorities. He however, commended President Buhari on his economic diversification agenda, which according to him has given opportunity for Kebbi State to excel in rice production.
The APC state chairman, Architect Bala Sani Kangiwa told the mammoth crowd at both Jega and Maiyama local government areas where the APC campaign train visited, that the campaign would be issue based. He said in every local government area, APC would showcase its projects to the people to see. Highlights of the event was the commissioning of roads and other infrastructural projects by Governor Bagudu.
