No fewer than 242, 987 uncollected permanent voters’ cards (PVCs) have continued to unsettle the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Delta State.
Executive Secretary, INEC in the State, Mrs. Rose Oriaran-Anthony who spoke in Asaba said: “As at April 6, 2018, a total of 242, 987 PVCs were still in our possession.”
She added that though Deltans had shown concern in the voters’ registration, and collection of PVCs, the uncollected cards were source of worry.
According to her: “there are other states which had quite huge number of PVCs uncollected; this 242, 987 PVCs uncollected in the state were from the past voters’ registration exercise. The PVCs from the ongoing continuous voters’ registration (CVR) arre yet to be out.”
Orian-Anthony, however, urged those who registered in Delta State, but were yet to collect their PVCs to ensure they did so to enable them carry out their civic responsibilities of voting their preferred candidates in the 2019 general elections.
