The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Nasarawa State has raised the alarm over the alleged buying of Permanent Voter’s Cards (PVCs) from women in the state.

APGA national secretary, Labaran Maku, raised the alarm yesterday while addressing a Catholic women conference in Agharagu.

His words: “There are some persons who are going about the state demanding PVC from women in return for N10,000 loan.

“According to intelligent reports, this group is representing the All Progressives Congress (APC), the ruling party in the state. They demand PVC, which they clone.

“Why are they demanding the PVC and not national identity card or other forms of identity before issuing the loan to the women?”

The former minister of information called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to investigate the allegation and plug any loophole that could compromise the 2019 general elections in the state.

Maku, however, cautioned women and other voters to report anybody who demands the PVC in exchange of any benefit.

Meanwhile, founder of the Centre for Values in Leadership (CVL), Prof. Pat Utomi, has urged Nigerians to participate effectively in the 2019 general elections to restore the country’s glory.

Utomi said although Nigeria is listed among failing states in the world because of bad leadership, “Nigerians can collectively decide to reverse the trend” by electing leaders who are capable of realising the vision of the country’s founding fathers.
