6 COMPELLING reasons to go get your PVC now

Sometime last week, my Selar co-founders, Yomi & Yinka and I decided to build a simple website to help people find locations to get their PVC, it’s currently populated with only locations in Lagos State, but we’re working to add more locations across all the states in Nigeria, and we also have a suggestion form on the website which allows anyone contribute to it.

Here’s the link: https://govote.org.ng

What’s even ironic is I actually haven’t gone to register myself — I’m blaming my work schedule 😄 Jokes aside, here’s a list of six strong reasons I will go and get my PVC:

  1. I’m tired of the complacency; I can’t imagine having someone that has no sense of urgency, or will to improve this fallen nation be my president for another 4 years.

2. Faith without works is dead; I mean, I’ll pray and fast about the next president, but INEC will not count my prayer points, so I’ll also get my PVC.

3. Not sure the maths going on here but the tweet is from our dear Oby, and the point is that I should go get my PVC.

4. These guys really think everyone in Nigeria is wearing pampers; I mean, the kind of stories we’ve heard in this regime though. The audacity!

5. Sadly, this is not a car showcase, but a queue for fuel, imagine saving up the cash to buy a car only to arrive at this. Tragic.

Totally unrelated, can you see what a ROAD in Abuja looks like? Two lanes are occupied yet, people can still move freely on the same road. Who did we offend in Lagos? Do we not deserve good things too?

6. Imagine being broke, no inverter, no service apartment, no stable power, and you still cannot buy petrol in a keg to power your generator at home so you can ultimately sleep and forget all the hassles of Nigeria. Why? Because they don’t sell petrol in Kegs anymore, and that’s reason enough in their opinion. I refuse to be killed by Nigeria, I will get my PVC.

Of-course, there are a lot more reasons that a whole book can’t contain, but I will stop at six. With these few points of mine, I hope I have convinced and not confused you to go and get your PVC.

Lastly, given the level of awareness for everyone to actively vote in the 2019 elections in Nigeria, I think it’s not out of place for companies to give a day off to their staff to go and get their PVC. We may think it’s too early, but it’s not. Maybe, by the time we have a very large number of registered voters, even the candidates making their announcement to run for office will know Nigerians are not playing anymore.

Please remember to share this link with your friends and enemies so they can go get their PVC. https://govote.org.ng/#/search
