2023 Election: Governor Ortom urges Nigerians to collect their PVCs

The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has urged Nigerians to arm themselves with Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) in order to vote for credible leaders in the 2023 general elections.

He also supported the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS), which will be used for voter accreditation and authentication in 2023.

Ortom stated this on Sunday at the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Makurdi, the state capital, while delivering his Christmas greetings at a church service.

He stated that the country was suffering from pains, hardships, economic problems, and security problems as a result of those who were elected to lead the country at various levels failing to fulfill their responsibilities.

He said, “The 2023 elections is the only opportunity we have. So those who are yet to collect their PVCs, please, I beg you in the name of God to do so because that is the only way you can exercise your franchise and restore hope and dignity to our country by electing leaders that have been tested and trusted who you can rely on and work with.

“One vote can make a difference. So if you want a change that will bring dignity and restoration to our country and promote economic development and add value to the development of humanity and restore security, that vote will count.”

He encouraged the people to ensure that they participate in the forthcoming elections, saying, “This time, there is no snatching of ballot boxes because it will not be there for anybody to snatch. BVAS (Bimodal Voter Accreditation System) will make a difference. And so your physical presence and participation is very important.”
