Danmalam explained that the directive was as a result of a meeting with the National President of the association, Mr. Chinedu Okoronkwo where he (Okoronkwo) mandated him (Danmalam) to give the directive on his behalf.

He stated that the threat to withheld salaries of members without PVC until they present their cards was to enable them meet up with the deadline of obtaining the cards.

According to him:

The association had resolved and directed its members not to give salary to any staff working under them until such staff present their PVC.

The association found It necessary to take the measure so as to ensure that all its eligible members obtain the PVC to enable them exercise their civic responsibility by participating fully in the forthcoming general election in 2023.

We are not saying our members should vote for a particular candidate or political party but our concern is our members should obtain the PVC because without it one cannot vote.

Danmalam further stated:

Our members should feel free to vote for any candidate of their choice whether he or she is in APC, PDP, APGA or NNPP. They have the liberty to vote for the candidate of their choice irrespective of which party he/she belongs.

The IPMAN chairman pleaded with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to extend the period of PVC registration to enable many of its members living in places where there is no effective network coverage to register.

He added:

The union was ready to open offices to facilitate the registration exercise as it had given similar support to the National Identity Management Agency where it assisted the agency with computers for the issuance of National Identification number (NIN).

Danmalam also urged their members to make the best use of the opportunity to register before the expiration of the deadline.
