“INEC Will Not Count Your Tweets, Get Your PVC” – Banky W Tells Nigerian Youths

“INEC Will Not Count Your Tweets, Get Your PVC” – Banky W Tells Nigerian Youths Popular singer cum actor, Banky Wellington has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s “sit and do nothing” comments targeted at Nigerian youths. Banky W as he is popularly known, commenting on the trending hashtag ‘Lazy Nigerian Youths’, urged disgruntled Nigerians to stop the outburst on Twitter. He said they should rather register for their Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVC). According to him, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will not count their tweets on election day. On his Instagram page, he wrote “Many young Nigerians have been tweeting non-stop with #LazyNigerianYouth and #LazyNigerianYouths to convey their displeasure at President Muhammadu Buhari’s remark. “I have a suggestion. Whether you agree, or disagree with the President’s comments, this time, do a little bit more than posting, commenting, retweeting, and complaining. Go and register to vote. “I’ve sat in countless meetings, seminars, conferences and hangouts with young people. We are always great at pointing out our issues.. but the truth is that we can sit around and complain from now until Kingdom come. It will not matter. INEC will not count your tweets. Let’s turn the month of May into #PVCMay. “Even if you don’t know who you’re voting for.. even if you hate every single candidate. At least register.. so that if someone comes along who you feel compelled to support, you can. “If you’re really serious about wanting Nigeria to be a better place, go and register to vote. Get your PVC asap. The registration period will end LONG before the elections come, so if you think you can wait until next year, you are wrong. “Get your PVC today. Or don’t bother complaining about anything, because it won’t matter. Your tweets will not count. Your vote will.” Recalls that Buhari while delivering a keynote address at the Commonwealth Business Forum in London yesterday, was quoted to have said that most Nigerian youths want everything free without doing anything. The Presidency, through the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has since clarified what the Buhari actually said.
