Imo state Governor Rochas Okorocha has advised residents and citizens of the state to collect their Permanent Voter Registration Cards to ensure political relevance in the forthcoming general elections.
Okorocha, who gave the advice in Owerri during a news briefing, decried the poor response of Imo residents to the call for PVC collection.
He said that Imo had the least number of registered voters and number of PVCs collected when compared to other states of the federation.
He added that failure to collect PVCs will result in low number of votes that would be generated from the state, which he said might deny the people key positions at the federal level.
The governor declared August 15 and August 16 work-free, to enable eligible voters in the state to register and also collect their PVCs.
