The speaker said the significance of the PVC was not just to continue building the state but the nation as well, adding that the card was their power for continuity.
“It is your power for stability and sustainability of our enduring and cherished democracy. It is the power to secure a bright and promising future for our children, the state and the nation.
” I want to urge our family members, friends, colleagues, traditional leaders, market women and men, students, teeeming youths and neighbours, trade unions and organisations, to ensure the success of the coming elections by obtaining their PVCs.
The Head of Electoral Operation, Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) Mr Felix Daramola, reminded the electorate that the 2023 general elections was 210 days away.
