Ahead of the 2023 general elections, a Catholic president in Nigeria has denied some church members entry into Sunday mass over their inability to display their permanent voter cards issued by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The reverend father said: “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 way you have Christians filling up the church but only a handful of them go to vote during elections.

“So, it means ­— our population and numbers mean nothing. So, we want Christians to take their responsibilities and roles seriously.”

“So, today, I am serious about it. As I’m standing here, if you have your PVC— begin to come in. But if you don’t have your PVC, find your way back home. You won’t attend mass here,” he said.
