The Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola has said that he does not have a Permanent Voters Card (PVC).
Fashola stated this on Thursday, January 22, during the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship rally in the Ajeromi Local Government Area of the state.
The governor also said that many eligible voters in the country were yet to get their PVCs while urging the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure prompt distribution.
“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,” he said.
“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,” Fashola added.
The Sultan had told President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday, January 19, that he did not have a voters card and as such might be unable to vote in the upcoming elections.
