Nigeria braces up to choose the next president

Professor Mahmood Yakubu, Chairman of the independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has reported that the total number of PVCs collected stands at 72,775,585, which represents 86.3% of the total PVCs produced.

 

At the moment he made this information known, the INEC chairman also emphasized on its preparedness for the rescheduled 2019 elections.

 

"At yesterday's briefing, we promised to make public details of Permanent Voter Card (PVC) collection nationwide," he said.

 

He also emphasized that the commission has operated under the policy that no citizen can vote without the PVC issued by the commission and read by the smart card reader. Having announced the total number of registered voters and their distribution by age, gender and occupation, citizens deserve the right to know how many PVCs have been collected across the country.

 

Further, he said that last date for the collection of PVCs was Monday 11th February 2019. He also announced that a total of 11,228,582 PVCs, representing 13.7%, are uncollected.
