The Senate leader, Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, has advised his constituency members to participate in the forthcoming distribution of permanent voter cards (PVCs) and continuous voter registration (CVR) in Cross River State.
Ndoma-Egba, who gave the advice at Ikom during an interactive session with some members of Cross River Central Senatorial District, urged all eligible voters to fully participate in the forthcoming issuance of PVCs and CVR by the Independent National Election Commission (INEC).
The senate leader told them that INEC would issue PVCs to eligible voters in the state from August 15 to 17, adding that INEC had fixed the continuous registration of voters from August 20 to 25.
While stressing the importance of the two exercises, Ndoma-Egba observed that it is important for every resident of Cross River to acquire their PVCs.
He also advised those, who have attained 18 years, to register because the data would provide basic statistics for planning and other activities that would benefit the state and its people.
“People must understand and appreciate the power of their vote,” Ndoma-Egba said.
He also advised the people to participate in the exercises so as to vote for the leaders of their choice in the next general elections.
