We have 8 million PVCs awaiting collection – INEC

TO avoid a repeat of some of the mistakes and flaws that hallmarked the 2015 general elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has embarked on moves to ensure credible polls, next year.

It has also urged the electorate to do their part of the duties by getting registered as voters, collecting their Permanent Voter’s Card, PVC, and coming out to vote during the elections.

Lamenting that some Nigerians are already hurting the electoral process, INEC said that many people are unwilling to collect their PVCs, lamenting that it now has over eight million of such uncollected cards in its kitty.

Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)
INEC’s Director in-charge of Voter Education, Publicity, Gender and Civil Society Liaison, Mr Oluwole Osaze Uzi, added that while the commission in some cases had tried to reach out to some Nigerians to come and claim their cards, many of them said they were not interested or that they had relocated from were they were registered.
