The government of Oyo State has beckoned on her young citizens to get their permanent voters card as the 2023 elections draw near.
This was made known by the Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Dr. Wasiu Olatunbosun on Saturday.
Representing the Governor at the Oyo State Youths Summit held at Mapo Hall, Ibadan, the Commissioner noted that youths needed to be more involved in the political process.
“For the present administration in Oyo State, led by Governor Seyi Makinde, we are committed to building youths with good character. We indeed call on you to be part of the politics in the State.
“Get your PVC and act,” he said.
He said: “Our country is drifting today due to poor leadership, therefore, we as youths must equip ourselves with the needed knowledge, so that when we get to these positions, we will perform differently.
“The only reason you can come on stage is because you have been equipped to lead. Be ready to use your voting strength to make the necessary change in the nation, you must not only engage in complaining but be fully involved”.
