The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has called on Nigerians to please get their Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs) to be able to vote for him as president next month.
NewsOnline reports that Peter Obi said his victory would depend on youths that have been the major victims of bad leadership getting their PVCs and voting for him on February 25, 2023.
The former governor of Anambra State reminded the Nigerians who are yearning for good leadership to use the extension of the deadline by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and ensure they get their PVCs.
Obi on Friday said, “Fellow Nigerians, we are one step closer to victory. In order to exercise your constitutional right to elect me as your President, you must vote. In order to vote, you must collect your PVC. INEC has extended the PVC collection deadline to January 29. Don’t miss the opportunity.”
He also appreciated Enugu State indigenes and residents for coming out en mass at Okpara Square during his presidential campaign rally on Thursday. He said, “I am awed by the massive love and support shown by Obidients in Enugu State today. It was a indeed a successful outing. We are one step closer to victory. You can count on us to deliver on our promises.”
Obi apologized to the traditional rulers and people of Delta Central who came out to welcome him en mass on Monday to welcome him at Olomu, but he could not make it.
He promised that he would make it up to appreciate their support for him. “I sincerely want to apologise to the Traditional Rulers and the people of Delta Central, who gathered at Olomu, the people of Isoko who I was supposed to meet at Oleh and the people of Agbor who came out in their numbers to welcome me to their domains.
“However, it became impossible to carry out the visits following the mammoth crowd. I apologize and promise to repeat the visits,” Obi said.
