By Praise Chinecherem

The Chairman of Transglobe Pharmaceutical Limited, Chief Bath Eli, has urged people of the Southeast, especially traders to maximize their population in voting during the 2023 general elections to achieve their desired results.

He said time had gone when Ndigbo would be in the comfort of their homes making predictions of who would win elections, without voting.

Speaking on Friday in Onitsha during the 70th birthday ceremony of the Managing Director of the firm, Chief Jasper Opkalafulaku, Ikenga Awka-Etiti, Eli described PVC as an important tool in every electoral process, stating there was need for everybody to get it.

He said, “The Igbo have great population in the country, but they need to work together as one. With every Igboman having PVC, they can negotiate to produce the president of the country.

“We are not interested in the political process of the country, we don’t vote and many of us do not have PVC to vote and we still want to produce president of the country.”

Eli further called on the media to mount aggressive campaigns for eligible voters to go and get their PVCs and be ready to vote on election days.

The celebrant, Chief Jasper Okpalafulaku (Ikenga Awka-Etiti) commended the State Council of the NUJ for finding time to celebrate his birthday with him.

While applauding journalists for their good works in the state, Okpalafulaku described them as mirror of society, urging them to continue to defend the defenceless in society, just as he noted that without journalists the country would be in the dark.

”You, the press, have done well in the country; you exhume what is hidden for the public to know. You have exposed a lot of evil committed by some individuals; without you the world is in darkness, ” he said.

Earlier, State chairman of NUJ, Dr. Odogwu Emeka Odogwu commended the celebrant for his contributions to the development of the state.

“The NUJ is proud of you and what you’re doing to create jobs for the youths in the state and the country. We promise to partner your company for greater development in the state and Nigeria,” he stated.
