The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has charged all residents and indigenes of Bakassi to get registered for their Permanent Voters Card (PVC), reiterating that the dead line is close.

The INEC Bakassi Local Government Area Officer, Mr. Lawrence Inang gave the charge over the weekend while addressing Ikang youths in a rally organized to celebrate the International Youth Day with the theme ‘Safe Spaces for Youth’.

He expressed great concern while commending the efforts and vigor of the rally aimed at educating the citizenry about the need to secure their voting right through their PVC.

His words: “You people should use this opportunity to inform everyone to go all out to register for their Permanent Voters’ Card because the deadline is fast approaching. Temporal Voters Card (TVC) will not be used to vote.

Meanwhile, the organizer of the rally, Miss Frank Edima, founder of Care Mentors said that “the aim of the rally is to sensitize the youths to create safe spaces for themselves rather than being used as political thugs and wasting their lives for meagre money.”
