(1) (2) (Go Down)
The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS)
on Saturday appealed to the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC) to further extend the Feb.
11 deadline for collection of Permanent Voter Cards
(PVC).
INEC PVCs
Mr Azeez Adeyemi, the National Public Relations Officer
of the association, made the appeal in a statement
made available to newsmen in Abeokuta.
He said that the extension became necessary
considering the fact that most of the students who
would be returning to school registered for their PVCs
within the school environments.
“NANS sees this call as imperative due to the just-
suspended strike of the Academic Staff Union of
Universities (ASUU).
ASUU strike: NANS pleads with FG to address grievances
of lecturers
“Most Nigerian university students will be returning to
the school environs where they registered for their PVCs
to pick them up.
“We recall that INEC had revealed in its statistics of the
eligible voters, ahead of the 2019 general elections, that
over 22 million voters are Nigerian students.
“As such, this cumulates to an approximate of 35
percent of the eligible voters.
“It is obvious that the duty towards promoting and
protecting the country’s democracy lies in the hands of
Nigerian students,’’ he stated.
Recall that ASUU had on Thursday suspended its three-
month old strike. The strike was a demand for
revitalisation of universities, academic earned
allowances, issuance of Universities Pension
Management Company and other issues.
Adeyemi called on Nigerian students to, as a matter of
national interest, return to their school environment
where they registered, to collect their PVCs.
He said that it would avail them the opportunity to
partake in the coming general elections.
The NANS spokesperson noted that the National
President of NANS, Bamidele Akpan, had directed that
all students must play active roles in ensuring successful
general elections.
INEC had initially fixed Friday Feb. 8 as deadline for
collection of PVCs but shifted it to Monday, Feb. 11, to
allow more people to have theirs ahead of the elections
which begin on Saturday.(NAN)
