After years of avoiding political participation, Nigerian youngsters are bracing themselves to fully participate in the upcoming elections.

Religious organizations are also helping to guarantee that everyone is on board with Nigerians’ newfound determination to make their ballots count.

A Catholic priest is shown in a video that has gone viral on social media telling members who do not have Permanent Voters Cards (PVC) to return home.

Multiple individuals have uploaded the video on the microblogging network Twitter as well as YouTube.

The Catholic priest said as he addressed the church members at the entrance of the Cathedral:

“From today, if you are coming for mass, carry your PVC, if you don’t have your PVC, don’t bother coming.

“Because there is no point in having Christians fill the church, but during the election, we have only a handful of them go out to vote.

“So, it means our number, our population means nothing. We want Christians to take their responsibility and their role seriously.”

The priest then instructed those with their PVC to come into the church and those without to go back home.

We  cannot verify where the incident took place, but many commenters on social media said the church is in northern Nigeria.
