Ahead of the general elections slated for February and March this year, the Kaduna state gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Isa Ashiru, has called on those yet to collect their Permanent Voter’s Card, PVC, to do so immediately.
Adding that the change they desire to see in Kaduna state would only be effective when they have their PVCs to support the PDP candidates in the coming elections.
Ashiru pleaded with them to go to the various offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to collect their PVCs.
The PDP gubernatorial candidate however, disclosed that the INEC offices usually open between 9am and 3pm daily.
Ashiru said this yesterday in Saminaka, Lere local government while receiving defectors from the All Progressives Congress, APC, and other parties into the PDP.
According to him, it has been on a week-long tour of local governments in Kaduna’s south and central senatorial districts to seek the blessings of chiefs in those districts.
While in Saminaka, Ashiru received the defectors alongside the former governor of the state, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, the state party chairman, Hassan Hyet, and other chieftains of the PDP after visiting all the chiefs in Lere LGA.
Makarfi who also spoke while receiving the defectors called on members of the PDP to unite to make the task of easing out the APC government easier in the state.
” for us to remove the APC, we have to unite. Respite can only come to Kaduna people when we have removed them from governing Kaduna state,” he said.
