The All Progressive Congress, APC, has raised concerns over the news of the alleged collection of permanent voter’s cards (PVC) by the opposition parties, Njenje Media News reports.
Governor Badaru Abubakar of Jigawa State raised the alarm while speaking after presenting flags to the APC candidates of the Jigawa South West Zone held in Jahun over the weekend.
“There was a report reaching us that some supporters of the opposition parties are collecting voters’ cards or [their] serial numbers with a promise of employment or empowerment grant if elected,” he said.
Governor Abubakar explained that the promises are fake and against the electoral laws, hence the need for electorates to be cautious of such politicians.
“You are living witnesses when they were in power only a few people enjoy the Sure-P programme but during our time almost everybody benefited from one or more government ‘s support and intervention,” he stated.
He noted that no amount of criticism by the opposition would influence people not to vote for the party in 2023.
He, however, urged the people of the state to come out massively and vote for the APC in the coming 2023 general elections.
