Pastor and founder of the Flock of Christ Mission, Warri, Delta state, Bishop Simeon Okah, has banned members of his church that have not obtained their Permanent Voters’ Card (PVC) from worshipping in the church premises.
The pastor urged all members to take the issue of PVC serious and go out to get one as elections draw near.
Okah, who is also the vice president of the south south Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) announced the decision on Saturday, while addressing the press.
He said: “From Thursday, any member of my church who does not have his or her voter’s card would not enter this house (Church). By the grace of God, I am the one God used in founding the Flock of Christ Mission.”
The possession of the PVC has been made an issue in recent months as the elections draw near. Many churches and establishments have taken steps to allow their employees obtain the all important voting card.
This is coming on the heels of development in the country where citizens are being urged to participate in the electoral process and vote credible leaders.
Only recently, Senator Oluremi called on the BuharI government to declare public holiday so that Nigerians can use the opportunity to collect their PVC
