APC North West Worried Over Uncollected PVCs By Youths

FROM RAHILA ABDULLAHI, KADUNA

The All Progressive Congress (APC) of the Northwest Zone has expressed worry over massive Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) lying uncollected in the office of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) mostly by youths in the zone.

The Zonal Youth Leader Abdulhamid Umar Muhammad, while briefing Journalists shortly after youth zonal meeting on Thursday  in Kaduna, said the zone cannot afford to lose votes of the youths because they constituted 25 per cent of the voting population in the zone.

However, the  APC youth wing in the North west has embarked on mobilisation of the youths to go for the collection of the PVC without further delay.

“Our commitment as the APC North west youth wing is to mobilise the youths in the zone to commit themselves to voting during the 2023 general elections.

“We are calling on the youths to go and collect their PVCs because alot of PVCs, from INEC statistics belong to the youths. We know the number of them that have collected and those that have not collected.”

He said. “We have thought its wise to create awareness to ensure that the youths collect the PVCs because of the importance of youths in the forthcoming elections.

“The youths form 75 percent of the voting population across the country and 25 percent in the North west, their importance cannot be overemphasized.

Abdulhamid explained that, before now youths in the country were used for thuggery, but the APC government made sure that youths are engaged in political activities without being used as thugs.

“We appreciate the APC leaders in the zone for political importance attached to youth. Each and everyone knows the vital roles youths played during the last general elections which gave victory to APC throughout the country.

“Therefore, we will continue to mobilise the youths in the zone towards committing themselves to ensure that APC wins the elections again in 2023”. Mohammed said.
