A cleric has called on the Nigerian Christians to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs), saying it is the power they have to put their choice leaders in office.
Pastor Moses Oyedele of the Living Faith Church, Durumi in the FCT, while delivering a sermon at the assembly on Sunday, made the call. He said the PVCs would enable the Christians elect leaders of their choice in the 2019 general elections.
Recall, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced August 17 as the deadline for the Continuous Voter Registration – CVR in the country.
The sermon quoted in parts as “The objective of the PVC is that, every registered voter gets his or her card on time so as to allow him or her exercise his or her franchise during the elections.
“Already, there are complaints over the collection of the cards, as many of the registered voters are unable to get their PVCs.
“As the nation’s general election draws closer, I appeal to the body of Christ who are eligible to vote to register and get their voter’s card. This will enable them to vote God-fearing leaders and of proven integrity, in the interest of national development.
“The electorate can only actualise their dreams for good governance if they vote leaders of proven integrity. “They can only vote leaders of their choice when they register and have their voter’s card.”
