INEC takes campaign to Oyo church as REC tasks worshippers on PVCs  



The Resident Electoral Commissioner(REC) in Oyo State, Mr Mutiu Agboke, on Monday urged Christians to obtain  their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs), saying it will complement their prayers for the nation.

Agboke made the plea   when the commission took its awareness campaign to Christ Apostolic Church, Oke-Agbara in Ashi, Ibadan.

He said there was need for every Nigerian to play an active role in electoral activities,  urging   worshippers who had registered in the past but failed to collect their PVCs   to do so.

”  Those that are yet to register for the PVC should also use the opportunity of the ongoing Continuous Voters Registration(CVR) to register.

”You should take the issue of PVC seriously just as you take prayer for the development of our nation seriously because your PVC will give you power to determine who governs the nation.

”Your individual participation in election processes is another way of praying for the nation because it will make our democracy to grow,’’ he said.

Agboke, who further reiterated the commitment of the commission to achieving success in the 2019 elections, gave an assurance that there would be forum  to continuously  engage with stakeholders  while  intensifying  awareness campaign.

”We cannot sit down in the comfort of our offices, but we  need to reach out to all stakeholders especially the eligible voters on the need to collect their cards and those yet to register to do so.

”We are here to engage the Christian community on the importance of PVCs and urge them to get registered,’’ he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that also  present at the occasion was  Mrs Dolapo Dosunmu, the Oyo State Director of the National Orientation Agency.
