As the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), begins the distribution of the Permanent Voter Cards (PVC), in the state, preparatory to the 2015 general elections, the Speaker, Imo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Benjamin Uwajumogu, has enjoined eligible members of his constituency, as well as the state to take the golden opportunity to register in order to defend their voting rights.

The Speaker, who addressed reporters shortly after collecting his Permanent Voter Cards at his Umuikpu ward in Ihitte-Uboma council area of the state, disclosed that the INEC voter card was a potent weapon through which the people could use to defend their electoral rights and choose their leaders.

He however, acknowledged the importance of voter education and sensitization among the rural populace, stressing that the beauty of democracy remained in the wider participation of the people in the electoral process, while urging INEC to step up its enlightenment campaigns to ensure that no eligible voter is disenfranchised in the upcoming polls.
Rt. Hon. Uwajumogu, added that the exercise was a great opportunity for people of the state, especially the people of Okigwe zone to re-write the wrongs of its past political leadership, by trooping out en-mass to register and also collect their Permanent Voter Cards, as this will enable them to vote in competent hands who would change the face of the zone in the forth-coming elections.

He further commended his Ihitte-Uboma constituency for embracing the exercise seriously, while urging those who are yet to comply to hasten up and be part of the current change in the area, adding that the wise decision during the 2015 general elections would determine to a large extent, the nature of leadership they will have in the next four years.
