Igbo Presidency: Ohanaeze tackles Oluwo of Iwo, says he needs to learn from experienced monarchs The Informant247

The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdurosheed Akanbi has advised the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to pay close attention to its workers and ad-hoc staff members and make sure those who’re into electoral malpractices are punished.

He also revealed that he will soon start to use possession of a Permanent Voter’s Card, PVC, as a condition to assist anyone seeking assistance of the palace, especially his subjects.

This was confirmed in a statement released by the media aide of the traditional king, Ibrahim Ali.

Ibrahim wrote that the king made this revelation while hosting the Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC in Osun, Dr Mutiu Agboke at his palace on Tuesday.

According to the Oluwo, “Any member of staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) aiding and abetting election rigging and malpractice is incurring the wrath of God, not only on himself but his or her generation. If you influence rigging, you are indirectly inviting violence. Electoral corruption always mars the democratic and economic growth of a nation.

“A patriotic citizen will never support rigging in whatever form. Let’s be honourable in our dealings”.

“I will start requesting the Permanent Voters Card (PVC) of every visitor or anyone in need of palace help. We have to place a condition that will force people to collect their PVC. Having the PVC is one of those things that qualifies you as a bonafide Nigerian in as much as you are above 18-year. Voting on the day of the election further entrench your citizenship”, he added.
