2019: Go Get Your PVCs, Group Tells Deltan
* Commends State’s Orientation Agency
A pro-democracy pressure group, Delta Collective Movement (DCM), has called on all Deltans who are of age to make out time and get registered with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), collect their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) to enable them exercise their civic responsibilities to vote and be voted for.
DCM, made up of like-mind professionals of Delta State extraction, also commended the state’s Directorate of Orientation which has been vigorously sensitising and educating residents of the state of the importance of getting registered with INEC for the coming election.
In a statement issued on Thursday and jointly signed by its Publicity Secretary, Charles Okogene and the Legal Adviser, Barr. Honesty Eguridu, the group particularly appealed to the the educated elite in the state to see reason to be involved in the government of the state by participating in politics.
” As professionals from the state, who are passionate about Equity and Fairness to all Deltans, unequivocally committed to Peaceful co-existence and the Socio-Economic Development of our state, we hereby make this passionate appeal to our people to please go and register, get your PVC and keep it safe. It’s the only ticket that qualifies you to be part of decision making process by voting for the right person and also to stand for election.
” Our appeal is particularly to the educated ones amongst us who feel it’s too stressful to get involved. And others who think politics is a dirty game reserved for touts. That is a very wrong notion. The state today needs you and your knowledge to move forward. Therefore, we call on all Deltans who are of age to go and get their PVCs.
” We equally note with satisfaction, the good job the Directorate of Orientation, led by Barr. Eugene Uzum is doing. The sensitization has been fantastic. We encourage the agency to continue with the good job it is doing.”
The group further appealed to the people of the state to continue to maintain the enduring level of peace being enjoyed in the state, saying that there can be no meaningful developments without a reasonable level of peace.
