Senator representing Lagos Central zone on the platform of the All Progressives Congress ( APC ) , Mrs . Oluremi Tinubu charged all Nigerians to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) and vote for the continuity of the party in the 2019 general elections.
She stated this on Friday at the 26th Town Hall meeting under her Youth Empowerment and Skills Acquisition Scheme ( YESAS ) held in Apapa, Lagos.
In her remarks, she appealed to Nigerians to exercise their fundamental civic rights by ensuring they use their vote to elect APC into power for the benefit of progress in the country.
“As Nigeria prepares for the 2019 general elections , we must begin to envision a better Nigeria by fulfilling our civic responsibility .
“We should ensure that only those who mean well for us are burdened with the task of leading us . Every adult citizen must as a matter of urgency collect their PVC .”
In the same vein, Oluremi has reiterated her commitment towards empowering members of her constituency.
“This is why I have stayed committed to empowering as many of our constituents as possible, bearing in mind that every job is honourable and there is dignity in labour. We cannot continue to wait for perfect conditions or hand-me-downs. We must start to look inwards to see what we can offer.”
Tinubu was not happy that whenever there were job opportunities, “we were unable to field candidates to take advantage of them because our youths have failed to meet the pre-requisite requirements”.
