Senator Ben Bruce
The senator representing Bayelsa East constituency, Ben Murray-Bruce, has advised Nigerians to get their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) and not be lured by the excitement of the Big Brother Naija reality show.
The Common Sense advocate backed his assertions by disclosing that 12 million Nigerians have lost their jobs since the All Progressive Congress-led government assumed office in 2015.
He said the complaints by Nigerian’s over bad governance was not going to remove the government in power if they don’t get their PVCs, adding that long queues should not be an excuse for Nigerians not to get their PVCs.
He wrote: “I urge Nigerian youths not to be lulled by #BBNaija and forget to get their PVCs. 12 million Nigerians have lost their jobs since President Buhari assumed office two years ago. Most of those 12 million are youths. The power to change this equation is in your PVC and not BBNaija!”
“If you haven’t got a PVCs and you complain of bad leaders, note that complaints dont get rid of bad governments. Votes do.There are long lines to collect PVCs, but if you can spend hours on fuel queues, you can spend hours to get a PVC to vote out those who make us queue for fuel.”
