- Former vice president Atiku Abubakar claims APC is purchasing permanent voters' cards
- Atiku says the ruling party is purchasing voters' cards for as low as N10, N20 and N50
- He advised Nigerians not to sell their future, adding that the ruling party will use it against them
The presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has alleged that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is purchasing permanent voters' cards ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Legit.ng gathers that the former vice president took to his official Twitter page on Wednesday, December 5, to make the allegations against the ruling party.
Atiku tweeted: "This is what the APC are doing. They are buying PVCs, they will come to you and give you N10, N20, N50 to buy your PVC - they are buying your future. Do you want to sell your future? Don’t sell your PVCs because they are going to use it against you. #PDPNorthCentralRally"

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the PDP presidential candidate berated the APC, saying steps taken by the ruling party since 2015 had ended in failure.
Atiku made the declaration during the PDP’s north central zonal presidential campaign rally which held in Ilorin, Kwara state, on Wednesday, December 5.
Atiku stated that the APC had misgoverned the country by making promises which were not fulfilled and that the opposition party was on a rescue mission to save Nigeria from further sinking.
He said: “In 2015, the APC promised us security which they failed to provide. They promised us food on our table, but today we are hungry. They promised us good health facility and adequate supply of drugs in our hospitals which they failed to do. They promised to fight corruption but worsened the system.
“Every step they take is a failure. In terms of corruption, they are the worst; in the provision of security, they have failed. They failed to create jobs for our teeming youths and today, inflation has taken over."
