The APC Nigerian Women in Politics (ANWIP) have sensitised more than 1,000 women in the Federal Capital Territory on the need to register and collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).
The National Convener of AWINP, Princes Bola Kazeem, during the sensitisation in Abuja on Tuesday, said women were the deciding factors in elections in Nigeria.

Razak said the only requirement for qualification to vote in the 2023 general election is the possession of PVC.
“If you don’t have your PVC, it means you would not be allowed to vote in 2023 General Election.
“I am calling on all women in the FCT and those in the 36 states of the federation to, without delay, go and register and obtain your PVCs.
“We are the mothers of the nation and we are suppose to show good example to our children, husbands and relations. We can do this by going to register and get our PVCs.
“Also, we are mobilisers. The 2023 General Election is fast approaching and we thought we need to contribute our quota to the scheme of things in the nation’s politics.
“There is need to sensitise our women to get their PVCs, because it is a weapon they could use to usher in a government that would take Nigeria to the next level.
“We know that without PVC, we would not be allowed to cast our votes. That is why we are here; to create impact in APC and Nigeria in general,” Kazeem said.
