APC accuses PDP of buying PVCs from Nigerians

Lai Mohammed

The All Progressives Congress has accused the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of resorting to underhand tactics, including the purchase of PVCs and the intimidation of some voters to seize their PVCs, in the wake of the recent postponement of the general elections.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party also said a company, Agro-Allied Communities Service Nigeria Limited, has been formed ostensibly to provide N50, 000 loan each to “empower” women.

It said, however, that anyone seeking to get the loan must provide her PVC as ‘collateral’, which is basically the essence of the establishment of the company that is supposedly a private concern but in reality a PDP front to mop up PVCs, especially in opposition strongholds.

APC said it was now getting clearer by the day what the PDP-led Federal government sought to gain by forcing the postponement of the elections for six weeks – which is to perfect their rigging plans.

The party warned those behind the abhorrent acts to desist from such tactics, which reflect the desperation by some people to hold on to power at all cost, even when it is clear that Nigerians have widely rejected them due to non-performance, massive corruption and profligacy under their watch.

It also appealed to its members and supporters in particular, and Nigerians in general, not to sell their PVCs under any guise, saying that is the only power they have to effect a meaningful change that can ensure the delivery of democratic dividends to them.

Our members have alerted us to the fact that PDP agents have been operating in all villages between Kobape and Orile-Imo along the Sagamu-Abeokuta Expressway in Ogun State, giving N10,000 to each poor villager and collecting their PVCs. The PDP agents are also promising each villager a monthly stipend of N10, 000 if and when their party assumes office in the state.

”Indications are that this objectionable PVC mop-up is being replicated in all opposition strongholds by the frenzied PDP, hence we at the APC have decided to alert the nation to the reprehensible act,” APC said.

The party also said that some Immigration personnel, acting under the guise of arresting illegal aliens with voter cards, are dispossessing a lot of unsuspecting locals in the northern part of the country of their PVCs. These unsuspecting people are arrested and their cards seized, all in an attempt to disenfranchise them.

”This act of desperation is totally unacceptable and must stop forthwith. Every voter should be allowed to exercise his or her franchise in accordance with his/her conscience, without intimidation or inducement,” it said. “We hope this is not part of the reasons that the PDP relentlessly campaigned for a postponement of the elections, so it can engage in PVC purchase and the disenfranchisement of innocent Nigerians through harassment and intimidation.”

    This is not true; APC is being clever. APC is buying PVCs in Lagos and demanding money from non-indigenes to release their PVCs. Many Igbos have complained that their PVCs are withheld in areas they are predominant residents such as Ojo and Ajegunle areas.

    • Arrest Warrant

      Change your story you are lying,nothing like that has been witnessed in this Lagos area confirmed..Except for bayalsa or ur minority home…the biafran empire..

      • Andel

        D biafran empire is not ur enemy so face it, Your life has been made miserable by the pple ruling Nigeria since 1960 and not us Biafrans. So if your heart needs to hate any1.. Please direct it properly and avoid hate speech.

        • emmanuel

          Nor mind these Cele and Sango worshippers. They like hidding under Igbo identity to mislead Nigerians.

          Their intent is to have a Fulani man now, take over at the Villa thereafter and perpetually ensure Igbo never ruleNigeria again.

          They know it will take Donkey years, if the Igbos and Middle Belt has to take it after Jonathan for them to reach Aso Villa again after the Owu witch (wizard). So the only option is to havea pre-mature delivery. God forbid.

    • Andel

      Arrant Rubbish.. Am an igbo and my mother and others igbo in Okoko, Ojo has collected their PVCs. How dare you Calabar Nitwit speaks for us.. You pple love using our names to start a war and later you stab us in the back like you did in Biafra war. This is a south-south war with the North.. Can you pple leave us alone. All Igbos in Lagos has there PVCs.. I wonder where this news comes from and why is it Olisa Metuh who is not an Igbo man that is saying we don’t have it or you a Calabar or South South Nitwit. Mehn PDP can say anytin in this life jst to put us in War against ourself.. Let them contest d election with the opposition and stop this propanganda.

    • emmanuel

      Isolo, Festac, Amuwo and Ejogbo too.

      If Nigeria remains, I urge the Igbos to work towards Lagos governorship after Agbaje in a neutral party and other ethnic groups will back you.

    NASS will,have to pass a resolution authorizing INEC to conduct election through Option A4 after proper verification. This will enact the 1993 free, fair and credible election we are all yearning for. PDP is ready to bribe every voter with N1m which they have stolen, and Option A4 will defeat them woefully.

    • Benny born

      the only available option left is that of option F9.

    • emmanuel

      Do you mean the equivalent of the $5,000.00 paid by Tinubu and Buhari to secure tje party’s candidacy = N1,040,000.00 at N208.00 today?

      Lest i forget the N3,000.00 paid by Atiku to same greedy and satanic APC members who would rather sell their birthright to the highest bidders is a crime against humanity.

      The desperation of Tinubu, Buhari and Atiku proves that the presidential material in the APC can only be found among Kwankwaso, Okorocha and Nda-Isaiah.

      Satanic change is not acceptable in Nigeria – no to APC bribe for vote at presidential polls.


    APC is always crying and ranting nonsense, they know that they have lost and they are really afraid after all the cry.

  • Arabakpura

    We will sell the fake ones to them, spend their money that rightfully belongs to us and punish them at the polls with the real cards! Danger men! all of them! Don’t ask me how we will get the fake ones; God will cover their eyes and they will not know that we are giving them ordinary papers in place of the PVCs

  • emmanuel

    Story story!

    The desperation of APC is immesurable. They have emptied Chad, Niger and Mali of their Young men who are paid to register and vote in Nigeria. Liar mohammed has rightly confirmed the fact that the APC brought in foreigners to vote and they are unhappy about Nigeria Immigration deporting foreigners who possess our PVC’s

    Those in Lagos are allowed to ride unregistered Okada without molestation. The catch is that they can quickly repatriate such Okada back to their countries after the election before the APC government engage in the normal clamp down. Unfortunately, God will not allow them win Lagos again or the FG.

    Imagine a party that would rather foreigners vote for them to win election – what a satanic desposition.

    even if the basis of collecting loans involves using pvc (that is if it is true), it never said it involves forcing the individuals to pick a political party. Please my advice to APC is that rather complain they should go and protect their votes
