Akpoti-Uduaghan tasks constituents on registration
Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State has declared a three-day public holiday for workers to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) for the 2023 general elections.
The work-free days, from Wednesday, June 29 to Friday, July 1, are to enable civil servants to register and obtain their PVCs.
Acting Head of Service (HoS), Garba Bilal, disclosed, yesterday, in Damaturu that the public holidays would enable workers travel to their respective local council to register and obtain PVCs.
“All the workers are to register, revalidate and collect their PVCs unfailingly at the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) offices,” he said, reiterating the importance of the ongoing exercise in the 36 states of the federation.
ALSO, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senatorial candidate for Kogi Central, Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan, has charged her constituents to ensure they register, transfer and collect their PVCs.
Akpoti-Uduaghan, who, alongside other PDP candidates in the state, received the party’s Certificate of Return in Lokoja, yesterday, further urged the people to turn out en masse to vote her and her PDP teammates for reformation of the country.
“There is an awakening of the youths across the country in the pursuit of good governance through credible leadership, and Kogi Central is not left behind this movement,”she said.
“Joining other candidates of our great party, the PDP, to receive the Certificate of Return births a new phase in our electoral process towards emerging victorious at the 2023 polls, by God’s grace,” she said.
