Nollywood Actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, has revealed today that she has never voted before in the country’s election and neither has she ever tried to.
She made this revelation after collecting her Permanent Voter’s Card, PVC, today. And she gave the excuse of the violent nature that characterized elections in Nigeria as the reason why she always stayed away from polling units.
Sharing a photo of herself with her PVC at the collection centre, she thanked Debola Williams for encouraging her to get her PVC and carry out her civic duty. She also gushed about how smooth the process went.
Today I went to get my PVC. This is a Big deal for me. I’ve Never Voted or tried to. Phew…it’s taken a lot to get here for me. Thanks my bro @debolalagos for picking me up and @mipad100 for ensuring I go through with this. As a kid, my Mum beat me mercilessly for thinking of going near a voting point. There was violence and some neighbours died… Never broken out of that experience till today.
The whole exercise took barely 15mins and was very peaceful. Phew!
