Former Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo has urged civil society groups, party forerunners to intensify efforts in mobilising Nigerians to collect their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) before the closing date of August 31.
He made the call at a recent one-day rally organised by Grassroots Mobilization Initiative (GMI) at Saint George Primary School, Ikoyi Lagos State.
The former Everton defender said that the acquisition of the PVCs was vital in keying into the country’s electoral process with a view to electing credible leaders during the 2019 elections.
“We are here to sensitise the public on the importance of getting their Permanent Voters’ Card (PVC), because that is the only power they have to elect trustworthy and credible leaders in power. Your vote is your constitutional right, so don’t deny yourself,” he said.
