INEC Distributes 72 Percent PVCs In Osun

IMG_3720THE Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Osun State has said that it has distributed 72 per cent of the Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).

The INEC Public Relations Officer in the state, Mrs Adenike Tadeshe, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Osogbo on Wednesday.

Tadeshe said the commission as at Monday distributed 1,016,071 out of the 1,407,107 PVCs received for the state.

She said the figure represents 72 per cent of the total number of PVCs received for distribution to registered voters while the balance of 391, 036 PVCs which was 28 per cent were yet to be collected.

The spokesperson said the cards were made available at ward and local government levels, and expressed regrets that some registered voters did not collect their cards.

Tadeshe, however, attributed the non-collection of the cards in some cases to death of registered voters, relocation and apathy by some registered voters.

She said the distribution of the PVCs would continue till March 8, and advised those who were yet to collect their cards to go to their respective wards and local governments between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. daily.
