No PVC, No Salary – IPMAN Tells Staff


The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) says it will not pay the salaries of workers who are yet to obtain or register for their Permanent Voter Card (PVC).

This is coming after the national president of IPMAN, Chinedu Okoronkwo asked its employees nationwide to obtain their PVCs before the expiration of INEC’s June 30 deadline.

Making this known in a statement on Friday, the chairman of the Kano State chapter of IPMAN, Bashir-Danmallam, said the decision was reached after a meeting with the national president of the body.

The statement read in part, “The association found it necessary to take the measure to ensure that all its eligible members obtain the PVC to enable them to exercise their civic responsibility at the 2023 general elections,” stated IPMAN. “We are not saying our members should vote for a particular candidate or political party, but our concern is that our members should obtain the PVC, because, without it, one cannot vote.

“Our members should feel free to vote for any candidate of their choice in any political party. They are at liberty to vote for candidates of their choice irrespective of which party affiliations.”

IPMAN further called on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to extend the deadline for the registration of PVCs to enable more people living in remote areas to register.

“We call on INEC to consider the possibility of extending the deadline for the registration,” he said.
