A group, the People’s Democratic Party PDP National Youth Movement, Abia State chapter has urged people of the state, particularly the youths to take advantage of the ongoing online continuous voters’ registration exercise by the Independent National Election Commission (INEC) to enroll and obtain their Permanent Voters Card (PVC).
The PVC, the group explained, will qualifies and gives them, particularly those of them who are 18 years by June 2021, the vantage position to choose the candidates of their choice during elections, even as it asked them to actively participate in the exercise henceforth.
The PDP youth movement in a statement in Umuahia on Tuesday signed by its Chairman, Comrade Nnaji Obed Asiegbu, Secretary, Comrade Ikechukwu Iroha and Publicity Secretary Comrade Emeka Ebere advised Abia youths resident outside the state, especially students of higher institutions who are qualified to register, to consider coming back home to participate if they cannot do it in their areas of residents.
Asiegbu later told journalists in Umuahia that registering and voting are major steps at ensuring that quality and credible leaders are elected into political offices to enhance and drive the needed change the youths are craving for.
