2019 : Register For Your PVC, Women Development Centre DG Asks Women

Barr. Mrs. Mary Ekpere-Eta, DG National Centre for Women Development
The Director-General, National Centre for Women Development, Mrs. Mary Ekpere-Eta, Wednesday called on women to take full advantage of the ongoing continuous voter registration being conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to get their permanent voter card (PVC) ahead of the 2019 general election.

In a statement, the DG reiterated the recent declaration of women backing the restructuring of the country, stressing that obtaining the PVC was the first step for women who hoped to return politicians that support restructuring.

She stressed the need for girls who turn 18 this year and other women qualified to vote to make out time to register at INEC designated centres.

Ekpere-Eta said women could only speak on developmental challenges that affect their communities, such as corruption, unemployment and poverty, by getting PVCs to vote for those who can address these issues.

She said: “From data obtained by NCWD, there has been a large turnout of women at registration centres. Nevertheless, there is still room for improvement in terms of the number of those who complete the process and obtain their PVCs.

“This appeal that women should go out to get their names into the voters register is very important, judging by the fact that we women constitute about 50 percent of the country’s population and we have to invest in the future of our children by voting for our preferred candidates for different positions at all levels of government.
