A governorship aspirant in Abia and Interpol Systems Consultant, Sir Chikwe Udensi has said he is not helping able-bodied persons who do not have their permanent voter’s card, saying it is an act of irresponsibility.

He said such persons are part of the problem the country is having, insisting that he is serious and unapologetic with the decision.

Speaking on Love FM’s Open Parliament in Umuahia on Wednesday monitored by ABN TV, the chieftain of All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA in responding to questions on those qualified to benefit from his second phase of retirees and senior citizens palliative ongoing in the state said only those who have their PVCs are qualified to benefit.

According to him, there is a problem of bad leadership in the land, which can only be changed through a democratic process.

This change he said can only be achieved through voting, noting that those who are presented with an opportunity to make positive changes in the land but refused to do so are part of the problem by not having their PVCs to vote.


“If you are a retiree, and you don’t have your PVC, you are part of the problem, you are happy that people are suffering. You are happy that we are in this situation.

“So you must have to have the tool, you must have to have the power to change. If you don’t have that power to change, then you are part of our problem,” he said.

He insists that only elderly persons and retirees with their PVCs and corresponding identity cards will be attended to in the charity outreach which involved distribution of cash and food items.

Sir Udensi said evil has persisted in the land because of the silence of the good people, maintaining that this will not be tolerated anymore..

“Perhaps you are even worse than the person doing the evil, because you have chance to change the evil”, he said.

At the ongoing palliatives distribution, his organisation Chikwe Udensi Foundation spearheading the outreach exempted the physically challenged persons from the policy.
