Over 16,000 Nigerians Pledge to Collect their PVCs through Bolt’s MyPVCJourney initiative

Bolt Nigeria recently announced its partnership with ACE Centre’s WeVote initiative to educate Nigerians and promote non-partisan voter awareness and participation with the MyPVCJourney (My Permanent Voter’s Card Journey) initiative. The leading ride-hailing platform launched the MyPVCJourney initiative to strengthen its community engagement efforts and as a commitment to the Nigerian people.

 As part of the initiative, a microsite where Nigerians can pledge to commence and fulfil their PVC registration and collection journey was launched. So far, over 16,000 Nigerians have shown their support for the PVC process by pledging on the microsite.

For Bolt, this initiative helps Nigerians locate PVC centres around their vicinity while providing complimentary rides to their collection points. Once your pledge is complete on the microsite, a custom pledge card is also generated that can be shared with friends and family on social media.

The MyPVCJourney campaign promotes social accountability and responsibility by creating a step-by-step awareness guide on the country’s PVC registration and collection processes. Whilst the campaign aims to educate Nigerians on their civic rights and responsibilities it also tackles the challenge of public and more specifically, youth participation in the electoral process.

Advocacy for Civic Engagement Centre (ACE Centre) is a youth-led NGO working through the WeVote initiative to encourage voter participation and reduce voter apathy to its lowest level, especially among young and upwardly mobile Nigerians.

Bolt is encouraging Nigerians to play their part in the electoral process by visiting the microsite to make their pledges.
