Report reaching blackpenng.com shows that the Pastor of the Flock of Christ Mission, Warri, Delta State, Bishop Simeon Okah, has announced that henceforth, any member of his church that has not obtained his Permanent Voters’ Card, PVC,

“We need men like Dino. Let everybody of goodwill fight to see
that Dino is released; if he has criminal records, he should face it but
he should not be kept in detention.
“He is intelligent. Let us see how we can save him from the hands
of policemen. For a man like Dino, the police should show some

we want this country to be great.”
Nigerians are taking the issue of getting their PVCs (Permanent
Voters Cards) seriously. Remember a twitter user recently shared on
how he disqualified 3 job seekers who claimed not to have PVC.
According to Afolayan Omotayo who shared the story on Twitter,
“I helped a friend to conduct interviews for staffing in her office
yesterday, 9 candidates were in attendance. I disqualified 3 of them
who claimed not to have PVC automatically. That makes my job
easy. It begins from there, extending to Mechanic, Electrician etc.”
