See How INEC Officials Allegedly Sabotaged The Process Of Permanent Voter Cards Collection



As the deadline for collection of Permanent Voter Cards(PVC) draws closer,  many registered voters in various part of the country have lamented their inability to collect the cards, Naija News Understands.

Some of the voters who expressed their disappointment at  Independent National Electoral Commission through their social media platform twitter berated the electoral body for their lackadaisical attitude towards the exercise. It will be recalled that INEC has fixed Feb. 8 as the deadline for the collection of PVCs ahead of the general elections.

Mr. Chidi Okere, a civil servant, who registered in July 2018, said he was told to come back on Friday because his PVC was not yet ready. “I am disappointed and I feel sad that I may not be able to participate in the forthcoming general elections,’’ Okere said.

Mr Micheal Oluwaseun, another registered voter who was at the INEC office said, “last week I was here to collect my PVC but I was told to come back today. It is still the same story that my card is not ready and the deadline for collection is Friday.“This means that it is not all of us that registered that would be able to vote. This is very bad.

“I wanted to vote but now that my PVC is not available it means I cannot vote,’’ Oluwaseun said.

Mr. Victor Musa also said that he applied for transfer of his voter card from Kogi to FCT since June 2018, yet his card was not ready for collection.“Since I will not be able to travel down to Kogi during elections, I applied for the transfer of my card to the FCT.“This is my fifth time of coming here. As I am now, I am even tired. I have dashed them the PVC. I am not coming back again. Let them do whatever they want with the card.“I have missed work for almost five times just to get PVC, yet I cannot get it. I am not interested again,” Musa said.
