Like millions of Nigerians, Lagos state governor, Babatunde Fashola, says he hasn’t gotten his Permanent Voter Card (PVC).
Fashola made the disclosure on Thursday, January 22, during the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship rally in Ajeromi Local Government Area of Lagos state.
The governor stated that it was unfortunate that many eligible voters were yet to collect their PVCs and consequently implored the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure prompt distribution.
Fashola said: “I have tried many times but I have not been able to get my PVC. Even the Sultan of Sokoto is yet to collect his PVC. I have been fighting them because of the shoddy way the voters registration went on in Lagos. I know that many people have not been able to get theirs, but I urge people not to relent.”
“Everyone should go to the wards where they registered to get their PVCs. Even if you don’t get it on the first day, do not relent till you get it,” he added.
