The party has therefore urged students and artisans not to surrender their cards for financial gains, describing it “as their weapon to vote out unpopular government.”
A statement by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Mr. Taiwo Olatubosun, in Ado Ekiti yesterday said it was criminal for the governor to do that.
He said: “Your PVC is the only power you have to decide your future. Once you submit the photocopy of your PVC, it will be cloned and will become useless to you on election day, be warned. Don’t give the photocopy of your PVC to anybody for any amount.”
But Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, Lanre ogunsuyi, denied the allegation, saying that Fayose, “as a popular governor who is loved by the people cannot descend so low to doing that. He  does not need to buy people’s love. You will recall that even before he was governor, his souvenirs were being bought by his supporters who are people of Ekiti State as against others who were distributing their souvenirs free. He has no reason to buy voters cards from the same people who have demonstrated their love for him in the gubernatorial election and since assuming office, he has been showing his love for the people through stomach infrastructure, construction of roads and payment of salaries. They are going to support President Goodluck Jonathan on February 14.
The APC spokesman warned artisans to be wary of Fayose’s directive asking them to bring their PVCs in exchange for CBN loan for Small and Medium Scale Enterprises, stressing that the programme had already been processed by the Fayemi administration.
“The unsuspecting members of the public should know that the loan will be paid back and it is not for political patronage, so they should not be deceived by this. On no account should they submit their PVCs or the photocopies,” he said.
