Finally the ‘Get Your PVC’ campaign by Nigerian celebrities takes a well structured shape.
Following the ugly happenings in Nigeria, which includes the June massacre in Plateau State by herdsmen, Super Eagles mysterious lost to Argentina after a well played match in Russia, which also resulted to the drop-out of the team from the world cup.
The Otedola bridge petrol tanker explosion that claimed lots of lives and burnt over 50 cars, the stealing of nine cattle belonging to Archbishop and killing of one person by Fulani herdsman in Plateau State, and a host of other atrocities by Fulani herdsmen since the beginning of the present administration.
Nigerian celebrities have been tweeting and posting messages on Instagram to encourage Nigerians to make sure they get their PVC in preparation of the forth coming election, as the only solution to the impunity that have taking over the country.
Surge Zirc earlier published lengthy write up by Nigerian celebrities, both music and movie celebs put together. The first was a statement from singer Simisola who blamed the government of the day for not being able to tackle security matters in the country.
There was also a publication from actor Chiwetalu Agu’s post on Instagram, which also enumerated loads of clear lapses on the part of the government. In the end the comic actor encouraged Nigerian to go get their PVC and get ready to determine whom their leader would be come 2019.
Nigerian female singer Yemi Alade recapped CNN’s news which says ‘Nigeria overtakes India as the country with the largest number of poor people in the world’ Her statement shows that poor people are getting poorer in the country, as government has no plans to empower entrepreneurs.
The last so far as published on Surge Zirc was from another Nollywood actor Alex Ekubo, who recounted what the role of the government should be. He also likened Nigeria to the proverbial small dog with a big name, stressing that Nigeria as the giant of Africa has got nothing in place to claim such position.
Still on same spirit of searching for solution to the hardship, waste of innocent lives and absolute bad governance, ‘Alex Ekubo’ released a poster for the ‘Get Your PVC’ campaign. The poster encouraged those who have not got their PVC to join the ‘Choplife Gang and friends’ as they match to INEC’s office on 6th July 2018 to do so. He wrote:
”It is our collective responsibility as the youth and citizens of the nation to participate in the process of electing our leaders, and it starts with getting our PVC. If you are comfortable with the senseless killing and gross ineptitude of our leaders and the reckless abandon at which our future is been squandered, please relax at home, if not then you are welcome to join ‘Choplife Gang’ as we storm INEC office.”
So far, we do not know what exactly to call the group, but we do know that the objective of the group is to ensure the collection of PVC by everyone who yearn for good governance.
Surge Zirc is currently working towards getting in touch with any of the Known faces on the poster to fetch more information about the group.
