Popular motivational speaker and Aspirant for the 2019 presidential election, Fela Durotoye, has warned Nigerians that they have no right to complain about inadequate governance if they don’t get their permanent voter’s card (PVC).
In an interview with Nigeria Info 99.3 FM in Port Harcourt, Fela Durotoye said the PVC empowers eligible citizens to have a say about who leads them in government and that they should not complain about the government if they don’t take advantage of the power they wield to make a change.
He further stressed that every Nigerian of voting age should understand the responsibility of their voting power.
He also said, “It is an option to decide who to vote for, but it is not an option to not register.”
INEC recently expressed concerns at the number of PVCs yet to be collected. In Lagos alone a total of 1.4 million PVCs are yet to be collected. A lot of people have however, complained about the stress and long queues they have to go through, to get the voter’s card.
