ENUGU—THE National Chairman of Non Indigenes Cultural Association, Comrade Peter C.J. Anigbogu, has called on its members nationwide to come out and vote the candidate of their choice who they believe is detribalised and also ready to work with non indigenes in their respective states for furtherance of democracy in Nigeria.
The chairman of the the group who spoke to newsmen in Lagos also urged its members who are yet to collect their Permanent Voters’ Cards, PVCs to as a matter of urgency do so before the stipulated deadline.
Distribution of the cards in Nigeria has lagged ahead of the hotly contested poll on February 14 that will pit President Goodluck Jonathan of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, against former military ruler, Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, extended its deadline for voters to collect their cards to February 8, but only 44 million out of 68.8 million have been distributed so far, with just nine days to go before the poll.
