The diaspora youth-group, however urged people of the state-constituency to secure their Permanent Voters’ Cards, PVC ahead of the election, in order to avoid disenfranchisement, as it cautioned that any move to field another aspirant from Ogwa clan for the election amounts to distraction and unpopular decision by a disgruntled few enemies of Ogwa clan.
