Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha made a new disclosure while addressing newsmen in Owerri on Saturday. According to him, in order to take part in various activities in Imo State, including receipt of salaries, civil servants must get their PVC.
Governor Rochas Okorocha who noted that many people in the state are not concerned about getting their voters’ card, stated that residents of the state will not be able to participate in socio-economic activities such as payment of salaries and getting admission into schools without the PVC.

On the ‘I-don’t-care-attitude’ of people of the state towards the collection of their PVCs, Rochas Okorocha said;
“The government is going to initiate the policy of ‘operation-show-your-PVC’ before you can enter the market to buy or sell and before you can do business or get anything from the government, and before your child can be admitted into schools. .
Even before workers receive their salaries from the government, they must show their PVC. We cannot allow the I-don’t-care-attitude of our people towards the exercise to continue unchecked.”
This is coming few hours after we reported that a Nigerian man, took to Twitter to disclose that he disqualified 3 job seekers for not having voters’ card.
On the voters’ card incident, @olagladstone tweeted;
I helped a friend to conduct interviews for staffing in her office yesterday, 9 candidates were in attendance. I disqualified 3 of them who claimed not to have PVC automatically. That makes my job easy. It begins from there, extending to Mechanic, Electrician etc.
If you don’t care how decisions are made in your country, which has a direct effect on your future, I wonder if you would care what happens to an organisation you just work for. Their side was clear, they simply said Nig does not worth it. I won’t take that from anyone.
I keep saying it, those who voted for candidates who cannot simply attend a national debate had done this country more evil than those they voted for. GEJ used the same statistics available to PMB, and in this video, he established the difference btw UNDERSTANDING and CLUELESS.
