Over the weekend, we noticed that there was a lot of conversation surrounding PVC registration. Social media influencers even went as far as creating videos to tell people to register and the hashtag #PVCIsAGoal. Going through the hashtag, we realised that this hashtag was started by none other than Dr Bukola Saraki, when he was engaged in conversation by #EndSars convener, Segun Awosanya.
The hashtag gained a lot of momentum over the weekend, with a lot of people commenting on the need to register for the Permanent Voters Card, as a means of getting the Nigeria they want.
Here are some of the reactions below:
Thank you @segalinks for your kind words.
The goal really is to collectively protect our fragile democracy while ensuring Nigeria works better for every Nigerian. Your PVC is a key part of that effort, have you gotten yours?#PVCisaGoal https://t.co/U8pDzqMYGq
