2023: Don’t Be Over Confident, Get Your PVC, Vote Peter Obi, Popular Clergy Urges Nigerians
By Charity Uwakwe
As the long awaited 2023 general elections crawls in, South-Easterners and Nigerians in general have been charged to shun overconfidence but strive to obtain their Permanent Voter’s Card, (PVC), in readiness for the exercise.
Speaking during Sunday service at Dominion City, Umuahia, the Senior Pastor of the Church, Pastor Ugochukwu Dimkpa urged Ndigbo and believers and in indeed, all those craving for a better Nigeria, to ensure they vote the Labour Party candidate, Mr. Obi Peter for President on the day of the exercise, slated for February 25.
Pastor Dimkpa bemoaned the recurrent bad governance which, according to him, has over the years, thrown the citizenry into abject poverty, but amidst utter optimism, reiterated that the Church had the capacity to change the narrative.
He, therefore, charged the Church not to be weary nor slumber in working assiduously towards the resounding victory of Peter Obi, whom he described without mincing words, as the elect of the Lord.
Adding, he said: “Everyone has a role to play in electing Peter Obi. D not be carried away by the crowd of persons drumming support for him. Make sure you get your PVC and be ready to vote Peter Obi for President. If by any means Obi did not win, the country will be in its worst jeopardy.
“So, we should be prepared to take the ‘bull by its horn’ and this can only be effective if we all have our Permanent Voter’s Card, (PVC) and do not sell our consciences on the day of the election,” he warned.
Continuing, the renowned gospel Minister, insisted that; “It is the church that will change the narrative. Get your PVC, do not slack; get twelve and encourage them to get twelve others and the network keeps moving. Vote Peter Obi.
On the envisaged overconfidence as could be witnessed among the South-Easterners, he said: “don’t say he has won already so my vote isn’t needed. It’s needed, because politics is a game of number. If we can get 50million people to vote for Peter Obi, he’ll win.
“If Obi Was not there and it was Datti, I’ll vote Datti”, he maintained.
