The Electoral Officer (EO) Gombe local government, Mrs Eunice Dogo, has called on women to take advantage of the remaining hours to collect their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) before the expiration of deadline today.

Dogo, who made the call in Gombe Thursday, said that the number of women coming out to collect the cards had not been encouraging, hence the need for them to use the remaining hours to collect their PVCs.

Dogo said the call was necessary so as to enable them to exercise their civic responsibility and to vote for credible persons as their leaders for the next four years.

“The distribution of the PVCs is being conducted at the Registration Areas but unfortunately majority of those coming to collect the cards are men, the women are very few, most of them have refused to come and collect.

“Now the majority of the uncollected PVCs are for the women, please before the end of today come and collect your PVCs, because, we are going to close till after the elections for the continuous registration and collection,” she said.

She assured that people who were at the centre for collection on the closing day would be attended to on that very day even if its 6:p.m.

Dogo further said that the turnout for the collection on Thursday was very encouraging but that the women were still very few. (NAN)
