Group launches campaign on PVC collection, voter education
To boost participation in the general election slated for February and March, Project Coordinator, Bally Kleff Entertainment, Akorede Balogun has started a voter education campaign to ensure Nigerians who registered for the Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC) collect them.
Speaking at a demonstration education show in Oshodi, Lagos, where he and about 20 other bikers were facilitators, Balogun said only the masses can decide the outcome of the election if they all collect their PVC and exercise their civic responsibilities. He said the new campaign is necessary because telling people to register was not enough, as Nigerians must also be encouraged to collect their PVC and vote for candidates of their choice.
Balogun, rechristened Mr. PVC by his fans, said despite funding the campaign through personal resources, Nigerians, who show interest in what he does, have encouraged him. Revealing plans to hold the campaign in all 36 states, the Biker appealed to corporate bodies, individuals and non-governmental organisations to partner with his group.
