According to Musa, “We will not allow anyone of our members to sit down without collecting his or her voter card.

“Our organization believes that the only way we can vote in leaders we want, those that are working and vote out those we believe are not for the masses is having the PVCs.”

He added that “The weapon we have is only the voter card; that is why is very important for every member to have the card ready before 2019.

“Anyone of my members I find not having the PVCs will have their position taken away while those that have the PVCs will take such position.”

Furthermore, he said that “By January, I will still call for this verification; any member that does not have the permanent card will lose their position in the union.

“I give those who are in possession of the temporary card up until January to get the PVCs.

“I will give out the position of anyone who will not have the card by January. Go and get the permanent card.”
