Trading in PVC unpatriotic
SIR: The move buy politicians and some gullible Nigerians to sell their voters’ card otherwise known as PVC is undemocratic and unpatriotic toward conducting credible and acceptable elections come next month. Those desperate politicians who are using the poverty affecting the masses of this country to purchase this card do not have the interest of the country at heart. Nigerians should stop selling their cad for peanut that would disfranchises them during the forthcoming election. This unseemly act has been reported in some quarters.
Those who engage in such attitude should remember that they are not promoting the cause of sustainability of our democracy. Nigerians have come a long way in ensuring that election must be an avenue for all to exercise their voting right by going to polling units to cast their votes without any form of proxy. It was also alleged that those people do collect this PVC serial numbers and code them into the system thus rendering the PVC irrelevant during any election.
We are calling on Nigerians to be vigilant and protect their PVC. The educated inform their loves ones not to fall into the trap of this unpatriotic people who are out to disenfranchise some people and thus bring about the change they need in their entire lives. Selling of their PVC would not make people to be financial self- sustaining now or in future.
The impotence of this PVC cannot be over-emphasised. Nigerians should, therefore, protect, preserve and make sure their PVCs are given all the necessary attention they so deserve.
