Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Edo State deputy governor, Philip Shaibu, has charged Nigerians to use their Permanent Voters’ Card (PVC), as weapon to elect credible leaders that would change Nigeria for the better.
Shaibu gave the charge yesterday in his residence in Benin, the state capital, during his annual hosting of practicing journalists in the state.
He said the country was in dire need of credible leaders that would fix it.
“In this coming 2023 elections, use your PVCs to elect persons or leaders that will fix Nigeria. Anytime, you are praying, pray that your PVCs will elect good people that will fix Nigeria.
“You know I am a member of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I have an altar here, my own PVC, when I am praying, I just put it there and say ‘as I am going to vote next year, the result of this election is that Nigeria must be fixed by the person I am voting for.’
“If all of us collectively have that faith and prophesy unto our PVC and vote, Nigeria will be better for it next time.
“The other election, we said I just like that person, let me go and vote for him or somebody influenced me let me go and vote.
“But this time, even though you are influenced, pray on that PVC that the person they asked me to go and vote for will change Nigeria and all of us will be better,” he said.
