Barely few days to the 2015 general election, Bayelsa Political leaders on Tuesday, challenged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), over the provision of Permanent Voter Card to eligible voters.
The political leaders, under the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN), led by the State coordinator, Hon. Wenipire Seibarugu, said, though the rate of collection of the PVCs has improved, INEC should ensure that PVCs, for all registered voters in the State, are made available for collection to avoid being disenfranchised.
Hon. Werinipre Seibarugu, a former Deputy Governor of the State, in a statement issued in Yenagoa, disclosed that TAN would work with all critical stakeholders in Bayelsa, to ensure President Jonathan gets 100 per cent of the votes for the presidential election.
According to him, Bayelsans have no choice than to come out en-masse and vote for President Jonathan, adding that voting for him is a duty every Bayelsan owes as a worthy Ijaw son.
Seibarugu, reacting to criticisms against the Jonathan administration, said Jonathan has performed creditably well and deserves massive support from Nigerians irrespective of political affiliations, noting that when re-elected, he will place Nigeria within the top 10 economy of the world.
He urged Bayelsans to take advantage of the extension of the collection of the PVCs and ensure that they collect their PVCs, so as to vote for President Jonathan.
Seibarugu commended Mrs Patience Jonathan for mobilizing Nigerian women to vote massively for President Jonathan.
