Youths protest non collection of PVC's in Imo

www.odogwublog.com reports that worried by the huge number of uncollected Permanent Voters Card (PVC) in Imo State, hundreds of youths under the aegis Imo Renewal Youth Movement have staged a peaceful rally to draw attention to the issue.

This is even as they called for the support for a youth to succeed Governor Rochas Okorocha in 2019.

According to them, the quantum number of uncollected PVCs still at the Independent National Electoral Commission's office in Owerri, was "affecting the political development of the state".

Led by their Imo State coordinator, Kingsley Chukwu, the youths said they will no longer watch old politicians ruin the State and by extension, their future. 

Chukwu advocated that the best way for the youths to takeover the reins of government in the state was to collect their PVCs so as to became active stakeholders during the next election.
The Imo Renewal Youth Movement called on Hon Tony Nwulu, currently representing Oshodi/Isolo federal constituency of Lagos at the House of Representatives to rescue the State.

Nwulu, who hails from Ezinihitte Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo state, is the sponsor of the popular "Not Too Young To Run" bill which seeks to drastically reduce the age limit in contesting elections in Nigeria.

The youths commended Nwulu for the bill which they said has been passed on the floor of the National Assembly and state Houses of Assembly and is currently awaiting Presidential assent and has gained numerous local and international endorsements including the United Nations. 

Chukwu said "Hon Nwulu has continued to work tirelessly at pursuing projects that would uplift the majority of the Nigerian Youths. It is noteworthy to point out that the not too young to run bill is the first bill that was laid on the United Nation General Assembly ECOWAS Parliament and the African Union", the youth coordinator said.
