It lamented that it was inferior that an eligible Igbo person could be reminded of the need to collect his voters card and to bounce in the coming choices.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo also called on other southeast governors to emulate Governors Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state and Dave Umahi of Ebonyi state and declare public holiday to impel residers to gain their endless Voter’s Cards( PVC).
A statement by its public hype Secretary, Dr Alex Ogbonnia history stated that “ Ohanaeze expresses concern that there are thousands of endless choosers ’ cards that are yet to be collected by their due possessors.
“ To this end, Ohanaeze draws a distinction between robust juggernauts and social media activism on one side and voting during an election on the other. While the ultramodern juggernauts can not be delinked with the Internet, in what some call technological determinism that is, the thinking in some diggings that the Internet drive the literal, profitable, political and artistic changes, in reality, it’s the voting geste of the group that determines electoral outgrowth at the pates.
“ In other words, while dribbling the opponent in a football match is crucial, it’s the number of pretensions scored that will eventually count. It’s thus veritably strange that an Igbo of whatever class or creed will be reminded on the need to bounce in the forthcoming general choices ”
also, it asked the Association of South East Town Unions( ASETU) to emplace their grassroots prowess to apply a policy of “ no pvc, no community rights ” in all the Igbo communities across the entire Igboland.
“Emphasis is hereby made that no genuine Igbo should allow original, private or selfish interests to stamp the Igbo collaborative interests. Every Igbo should thus realize that the PVC and advancing on the election day are the sinequanon for the fruition of the Igbo collaborative desideratum for 2023. ”
