2019 Elections: PDP Reveals What APC Is Planning To Do With Uncollected PVCs

1,000 Buruji Kashamu's Loyalists Dump PDP For APC

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, of planning to use uncollected Permanent Voters’ Cards, PVCs, to give President Muhammadu Buhari votes.

Through its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement, PDP also appealed to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, for extension of time by three days for collection of the PVCs.

The party said the demand of three days extension was predicated on reports across the country that some compromised INEC officials at the collection centres were deliberately refusing to issue the PVCs to voters, thereby frustrating millions of registered voters.

According to him, “The PDP believes that this deliberate refusal to release the PVCs is part of the wider plot by the APC to disenfranchise millions of Nigerians and frustrate their eagerness to vote out President Buhari at the February 16 presidential election and elect the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar.”

The party asked INEC to explain why they refused to issue PVCs to their owners when they came for it, but rather asked that they come on a later date when they knew the deadline was fast approaching.
