Go get your PVC, APC chieftain urges youths
BY BENEDICT NWACHUKWU, ABUJA
Ahead the 2023 general elections, the National Coordinator, APC Grassroots Youths for Change, Hon. Henry Orlu has urged the youths to take their fate in their own hands by ensuring that they register and collect their Permanent Voter’s Card, PVC, in the ongoing continuous voter registration.
The APC chieftain made the call over the weekend in Karu local government area of Nasarawa State, during a novelty football match organized by the Abuja professional football association.
The football match was played between selected Abuja professionals and a select team which includes some former Nigerian internationals like Sunday Mbah, the scorer of Super Eagles’ winning goal in the final of AFCON in South Africa in 2013, Fegor Ogude, Juwon Oshanuwa amongst others.
Hon. Orlu who is also a member of the presidential supports committee said the youths have to be at the centre of the decision of who governs the country and how it is governed in 2023.
Emphasizing on the need to mobilize the youths to register and collect their PVCs, Hon Henry said the only way they can seize that opportunity is to have a PVC and use it to their best interest in the 2023 general election.
“The era of docility by the young people or at best used as political thugs by politicians was over. All over the world there is movement for good governance driven by the youths and the case of Nigeria cannot be different.”
Recall that the youths had trooped out in mass to get registered using the window provided by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) at the ongoing Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) nationwide. The exercise closed on June 30 but the Commission danced to the tune of the over willing Nigerians desiring to register and extended the exercise indefinitely.
