While urging Nigerians to get their Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC), Peter Okoye said people should also make the message on vote buying go viral, perhaps some other people can think twice about selling their votes.
Assuming you sell your vote for N10000 divide it by 365 days in a year and that’s around N28 divide further by 4 years and that’s approximately N7.
Now imagine selling your future at a rate of N7 per day. I suggest we make this go viral, maybe on social media, billboards, placards, t-shirts.
Perhaps If people see it from this perspective, they will think twice about selling their votes.
Get your PVC
Peter Okoye did not stop there, he went on to admonish Nigerians to vote people who will change the system into power. The singer revealed several heinous issues that the country is facing at the moment.
Okoye listed insecurity, ASUU strike and unemployment as some of the problems that citizens of the country are experiencing.
