THE traditional ruler of Umuawulu, Igwe Joel Egwuonwu has condemned the recent attack on some Igbos by suspected hired political thugs whose mission was to prevent them from processing their permanent voters cards (PVCs) ahead of the 2023 general elections.

  Igwe Egwuonwu, who reacted to the ugly incident, urged the federal government to rise to the occasion to ensure that such disturbing incident was not allowed to rear its ugly head again.

  The royal father noted that every eligible voter has the unfettered right to obtain his or her PVC in any part of the court unmolested.

  He urged Nigerians to make it a matter of priority to obtain their permanent voter cards to participate effectively in next year’s general elections.

  In his community Umuawulu, Igwe Egwuonwu said he is mobilising using all available means to sensitise them on the importance of the exercise.

  In a related development, the Medical Director, Zion Hospital, Nawfia, and former Awka Zonal Chairman of the Nigerian Medical Association, Oliver Onwughalu enjoined the Nigerian electorate who desire change in the leadership of Nigeria in all ramifications to get their permanent voter cards.

  According to Dr. Onwughalu, the days of voter apathy, manipulation of election results and threats from secessionists are over and should therefore spur them to participate in the 2023 general elections to vote leaders of their choice.

  In his community Umunnachi, Dr. Onwughalu announced that stakeholders’ meeting was held where  decisions were taken to penalise all eligible adults who fail to obtain their PVCs.

  According to his request, any youth up to the age of 18 who fails to obtain his or her PVC is considered a minor and cannot be allowed to vie for any elective position in the community.

  He encouraged the Igbos to get their PVCs to beef up their voting strength ahead of the 2023 general elections.

  On her part, the Executive Secretary, Local Government Staff Pensions Board, Gloria Obiora-Ibezim commended the Nigerian electorate for their zeal in getting their permanent voter cards which will give them the right to vote for leaders of their choice.

  In a similar reaction, an industrialist from Isi Achina, Chief Joseph Nwakpadolu urged all eligible voters in Nigeria to ensure that their PVCs are up to date to be part of the 2023 general elections.
