The National Road Transport Workers Union (NURTW) is forcing its members in Lagos State to give up their permanent voter cards (PVC) for unknown reasons. According to sources, as of this morning, a number of union members in several areas of Lagos have handed over her PVC to her NURTW officers in Agege.
All his NURTW chapters in Lagos attended a state meeting on Thursday, but the results of the meeting were not announced until this morning, according to a union member who wished to remain anonymous.
"They concluded this morning that all his NURTW members are required to submit their PVC to their branch or division clerk," he told his FIJ.
"I gave up mine. They arrived at 10 a.m. this morning to collect it. But why would they steal PVC from us?
"I don't know when they will give it back to us." "They want to use the PVC for another purpose, so on Election Day he won't give us the chance to use the PVC."
When FIJ used his Google phone number to contact NURTW's Lagos State Council, a representative said he was unaware of the development. "I know nothing about it. I don't know what you're talking about," said an unidentified police officer who answered the phone.
