Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara has advised eligible voters in the state against exchanging their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) for peanuts from politicians.
The governor gave the advice on Monday during the All Progressives Congress (APC) one-day campaign tour of Kaima LGA, led by him.
He described the PVCs as the major democratic instrument of determining the political fate of candidates, parties, the state and that of the country at large.
He told people of Kaima, headquarters of the LGA, Banni, Kugiji, Venra and Gbeira, where the campaign had stop overs, that the PVCs were the only weapon people would use to vote people and Party of their choice into power.
He alleged that reports reaching him showed that opposition parties have been making overtures to registered voters to exchange their PVCs for pittance.
Ahmed appealed to the people of the area to vote for APC candidates in the forthcoming state and National assemblies, governorship and presidential election.
The governor stated that the APC Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), would tackle corruption and end the terrorism being unleashed on the country by the militant Islamic sect Known as Boko Haram.
He also appealed the people to re-elect him, this time around on the platform of APC, assuring that he would continue to improve on his administration’s recently graded Kishi–Kaima road.
