INEC Sensitizes Nigerians on PVCs Collection

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has again stressed the need for residents of Ekiti State who are yet to collect their permanent voter’s cards, PVCs, to do so in order to choose leaders of their choice in the forthcoming elections.

Ekiti state INEC Resident Electoral Commission, Professor Ayobami Salami stated this in Ado Ekiti during a road show, put up by the commission in partnership with some relevant organisations to sensitise the people on the need to collect their PVCs.

Professor Salami said the low response of eligible voters to the collection of their PVCs despite various enlightenment programmes necessitated the roadshow to further inform the people to obtain their cards.

According to him, it is only with PVCs that individuals can vote during the polls.

Professor Salami explained that over two hundred thousand have not collected their PVCs, out of the about one million registered voters in Ekiti state.

The roadshow awareness on PVCs collection took the commission to marketplaces, streets and strategic points.

Also, pamphlets were shared to the people, placards with inscriptions like “Vote not fight” were displayed with verbal sensitisation in both English language and Ekiti dialects carried out by participants.
