2019 ELECTIONS: Don't disenfranchise yourselves — Wamakko to Nigerians

Chairman of the Northern Senators Forum, Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko has harped on the need for the electorate to obtain the Permanent Voter Card (PVC), describing it as  a very potent weapon to either vote in or vote out any candidates seeking to occupy any elective offices. 

"Without it, one would not be able to exercise his due constitutional responsibility of casting his or her vote in the nation's electoral process, " he added.

The Senator representing Sokoto North Senatorial District stated this in Sokoto when some  youths and women groups paid him solidarity visits.

He advised people to ensure they collect the PVCs noting that the Independent National Electoral Commission  ( INEC), was still distributing them. 

 "Any electorate who fails  to collect the cards would disenfranchise himself or herself during the forthcoming general elections." 

He also stressed the need for  people of the state to shun all acts capable of breaching peace and unity.

" We should therefore as patriotic citizens continue to uphold the noble virtues of peace, unity and the love for one another, irrespective of any religious,  ethnic or political affinities ," he said 

Wamakko described Peace as  the veritable tool of national development. 

" Without peace", he said, " no nation could prosper to greater heights."
