Ohanaeze Ndigbo Has Expressed Concern About Uncollected PVC In The Southeast

Ohanaeze Ndigbo sounded the alarm on Tuesday about the number of permanent voter cards that have yet to be collected from their rightful owners in the Southeast.

They complained that it was unacceptable to remind eligible Ibos that they must collect voter cards and vote in the upcoming elections.

Ohanaeze Ndigbo also proclaimed a holiday for other governors in the southeast to follow in the footsteps of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State and Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, forcing residents to obtain a Permanent Voter Card (PVC).

In a statement from the National Public Relations Secretary, Dr. Alex Ogbonia said yesterday:
“Ohanaeze expresses concern that there are thousands of permanent voter ID cards that have not yet been collected from their rightful owners.

“To this end, Ohanaeze draws a distinction between robust campaigns and social media activism on one side and voting during an election on the other. While the modern campaigns cannot be delinked with the Internet, in what some call technological determinism: that is, the thinking in some quarters that the Internet drive the historical, economic, political and cultural changes, in reality, it is the voting behaviour of the group that determines electoral outcome at the polls.

“In other words, while dribbling the opponent in a football match is key, it is the number of goals scored that will ultimately count. It is therefore very strange that an Igbo of whatever class or creed will be reminded on the need to vote in the forthcoming general elections”

Similarly, it asked the Association of South East Town Unions (ASETU) to deploy their grassroots prowess to implement a policy of “no pvc, no community rights” in all the Igbo communities across the entire Igboland.

“Emphasis is hereby made that no genuine Igbo should allow local, private or selfish interests to override the Igbo collective interests. Every Igbo should therefore realize that the PVC and voting on the election day are the sinequanon for the actualization of the Igbo collective desideratum for 2023.”
