The clergy charged Nigerians to partake in the exercise so that they can vote in the upcoming elections.
In a bid to ensure Nigerians exercise their franchise and vote out bad leadership which has plagued the country since independence, the General Overseer of Omega Power Ministries (OPM), Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere, has donated the 300 branches of his ministry across Nigeria to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to serve as Permanent Voters’ Card (PVC) collection centres.
Apostle Chibuzor’s move was motivated by INEC’s recent claim that they are short of registration centres across the country. In a social media message, the patriotic Nigerian clergy said:
“I, Apostle ChibuzorChinyere, the G.O of OPM, hereby release all 300 branches of OPM around Nigeria to be used as PVC collection centres free of charge by INEC. While our normal church service still holds, we are borrowing INEC space inside our church for PVC registration.
So all members of OPM that have not been chanced to register for PVC; it is now at your door post. As you come to church service on Sunday, you register for PVC.’’
The religious cleric went further to motivate the staff of the electoral body by stating that,
“If INEC staff don’t work on Sundays, OPM church is ready to contribute small allowances for them to show up on Sundays, while other working days will be paid by INEC. The Nigerian government has made PVC registration free of charge. The future of this country is in your hands. We can no longer fold our arms and watch.’’
Apostle Chibuzor also used the opportunity to call on other Nigerian clergies to mobilize their members and equally use their church premises for PVC centres in other to enable members to register easily.
“Please, I also use this opportunity to encourage my fellow General Overseers to mobilize their members for PVC registration across Nigeria and let INEC also open PVC collection centres in your church branches, so your members will not give any excuse not to register in the next election. If they can come to church on Sunday, they can as well register as church service closes. If government health workers that vaccinate children can leave their hospitals and come to different churches on Sunday to vaccinate children, why can’t INEC do the same because these concern the children’s future?’’Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere
