The Atiku Critical Economic Sector Organisation (ACESO), has called on the low income earners and unskilled workforce across the country to support the former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubarkar in 2019 presidential race.
Convener of the organisation, Mr. Chilenye Onuoha Ekwuru, who made the call yesterday in Abuja after the formal inauguration of the Working Committee of ACESO, said that people from the unorganized sector in the country have been neglected for so long, hence the need to carry them along.
Ekwuru called on Nigerians to obtain their Permanent Voters Cards (PVC), in readiness to vote for candidates that would better their lives, adding that their voters card is the only weapon at this particular point in time.
According to him, “2019 general elections are fast approaching and the need for all Nigerians to obtain their PVCs to enable them vote for candidates of their choice cannot be overemphasized. Without PVC, you do not have any power to change any government.”
“People from the unskilled workforce have been relegated to the background for so long, so it is left for them to act wisely this time around so that they can cast their votes for candidates that they think will care for them and as well carry them along.
“The aim of this inauguration was to sensitise small income earners and unskilled workforce to obtain PVC in readiness to vote come 2019 elections. They need to be carried along. They need to be recognized like any other sector in the country” he said.
Ekwuru asserted that the unskilled sector, which supposed to drive the economy of any nation, was relegated to the background, calling on all those that belong to this group to cast their votes for Atiku, come 2019 presidential election.
The occasion also witnessed the inauguration some of the associations that associated with ACESO, which included Okada Riders Associations, Keke Riders Associations, Mechanics Association, Taxi Drivers Association, Truck and load carriers groups among others.
