The All Progressives Congress (APC) has raised the alarm over the antics

of a certain political party that has engaged in buying Permanent Voter's

Cards (PVCs) with a view to disenfranchising the owners of such cards,

especially in opposition strongholds.
In a statement issued in Lagos on Friday by its National Publicity

Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said while such purchased PVCs

may not be transferable, those who are buying them are doing so to reduce

the votes in the opposition strongholds and improve the chances of their

own party at the polls.
”We appeal to our supporters in particular and all Nigerians in general

not to sell their PVCs, because this will amount to mortgaging the future

of their children just because of a paltry 1,000 Naira,” it said. ”Your

voter's card is your power to help forge the much-needed positive change

in our country. Protect it!”
Meanwhile, the APC has urged all its members and supporters who are yet to

collect their PVCs and register to vote to do so urgently, saying they

should visit their local government headquarters for the two exercises.

The party said while distribution of the cards and the continuos

registration at the polling units may have ended, both exercises are still

ongoing at the local government headquarters until Jan. 31st 2015,

according to the assurances given by INEC.
”We have been assured by INEC that all those who registered will get their

PVCs and the chance to vote in the 2015 general elections. We are

therefore appealing to all our members and supporters who have not

collected their cards to immediately proceed to their local government

headquarters to collect them,” it said.
