The President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, has called on Nigerians who have collected their Permanent Voters Cards, PVCs, to exercise their civic responsibility, by voting for their preferred Candidates in Saturday’s general elections, most especially the Presidential election; and also ensuring to go the extra mile of protecting their votes.
Saraki, who is also the Director-General of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential Campaign Council, made the appeal on Sunday, in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu.
The Senator, who highlighted several reasons why Nigerians need to participate massively in the forthcoming elections, noted that, the results of the elections cannot be manipulated, if there is high voter turnout.
He said: “We have all seen how the last four years have gone. It is time for Nigerians across the nation, to choose economic growth over poverty; choose security over the growing and fast spreading insecurity; and choose competent leadership over leadership that is outdated.
“If you have ever questioned if Nigeria can be better, coming out to vote with your friends and relatives who have PVCs, next Saturday, will be your answer.
“It is not enough to tweet about this government or share WhatsApp broadcasts, the time has come for all Nigerians to take their future in their hands, and vote for visionary Leaders, Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi, and the PDP slate of Candidates, who are promising a Better Nigeria, and are ready.”
