The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, and his deputy, Eze Madumere, have collected their Permanent Voters Cards at their different polling centres.
The State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, upon the collection of his Permanent Voters Card at Ogboko Ward 2 in Ideato South Local Government Area of the state, urged all Nigerians and Imo citizens particularly to ensure that they collect their own card which he said was a determinant to voting good governance and reliable leadership.
He said that even though there had been hiccups in some Local Government Areas across the state on the collection of the permanent voters card, INEC must keep to their promise of solving the problems encountered during this period before proper elections.
On his part, at Ezihinitte ward in Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo State where the Deputy Governor collected his PVC, he asked that INEC should extend the date so that many citizens who have not been able to collect theirs could do that.
He noted that this had become necessary since the commencement of the exercise had been shaky due to the logistic problem encountered.
He urged all Imo citizens to take advantage of the opportunities they have to collect their PVCs to enable them play their roles in ensuring the dividends of democracy.
