Employees of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) will not get their salaries until they obtain the Permanent Voter Card (PVC).
“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,’’ Danmallam stated.
The IPMAN chairman also urged INEC to extend the PVC registration period to enable many members who live in remote areas and do not have access to the internet to register.
“The union is ready to open offices to facilitate the registration as it gave similar support to the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).
“It assisted the NIMC with computers for the issuance of National Identification Numbers (NIN).
“Beside the Federal Government, our organisation is the highest employer of labour in the country. We call on INEC to consider the possibility of extending the deadline for the registration,’’ he stressed.
Danmallam urged IPMAN members to make the best use of the opportunity to register before the expiration of the deadline.
