Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has appealed to Lagosians of voting age to pick up their permanent voters cards, PVCs, from the various Independent National Electoral, INEC, Offices in their localities.
He made the call when he stopped by at the INEC office in Sura area of Lagos Island to pick up his PVC alongside the Deputy Governor and some of his cabinet members.
Governor Sanwo-Olu who is seeking re-election on the platform of his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, a few months ago redesignated his location and updated his details, having moved his polling unit from Ikoyi to Lagos Island, ahead of next year’s governorship election.
He said “I moved my polling unit and I am here to pick my reprinted Voter card, and I want to enjoined everyone, let us seize this opportunity to go out and collect our PVC, you can see that at the INEC office here, it took less than two minutes and it is peaceful, so my advice to all of us that are yet to collect our PVCs to go out and do so, I have collected mine”
Governor Sanwo-Olu reminded the people that it is only when they collect their PVC that they would be able to exercise their franchise next year.
