Onna - Gov. Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom has advised the electorate who are yet to collect their Permanent Voter Cards to do so before the upcoming general elections.

He gave the advice at the PDP Campaign Rally in Onna Local Government Area on Monday.

He said it was only when people have their voter cards that they would be able to cast their votes for the candidates of the choice.

He added that "if you are ready to cast your votes for President Goodluck Jonathan, if you are ready to bring the next governor of Akwa Ibom, you must go and collect your cards.

"It is your PVCs that will ensure the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan, Udom Emmanuel and other PDP candidates in the state."

He urged the people of Akwa Ibom to vote for President Jonathan and all the PDP candidates in the state.

In his remark, Mr Udom Emmanuel, the state’s PDP Governorship Candidate, commended President Goodluck Jonathan for his transformation agenda in the country.
