INEC Decries Low PVC Collection in Osun

Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Osun State, has decried the low turnout of electorates who came for the collection of their Permanent Voter card.

The State Resident Electoral Commissioner, INEC, Dr. Mutiu Agboke stated this in an interview with Newsmen during a sensitisation rally around Osogbo, Osun State capital.

Dr. Agboke said out of 408,197 PVC ready for collection, only 1,032 people have collected between December 12th and 16th, describing it as unsatisfactory.

He explained that INEC decided to meet with the people to sensitise them on why they needed to collect their PVC so that they could participate in the forthcoming election.

In the preparation of INEC for the 2023 election, the INEC Resident Commissioner said the state office had taken delivery of 5,306 Bimodal Voter Accreditation System, BVAS, that would be used on Election Day.

Dr. Agboke, while urging the electorates not to sell their PVC to politicians, advised those who were yet to collect their Permanent Voter Card, PVC, to do so as anyone without PVC would not be allowed to vote during the election.
