PVCs: PDP Accuses INEC Officials Of Frustrating Collection


Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of frustrating collection of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).
To this end, the party has asked the commission to extend the collection of PVCs by three days.
Recall that INEC had announced that the deadline for the collection of PVCs was today.
PDP, in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan explained that the demand for extension was predicated on reports across the nation that some compromised INEC officials at the collection centers were deliberately refusing to issue the PVCs to voters thereby frustrating millions of registered voters from getting their voters cards.
“PDP believes that this deliberate refusal to release the PVCs is part of the wider plot by the APC to disenfranchise millions of Nigerians and frustrate their eagerness to vote out President Muhammadu Buhari at the February 16 Presidential election and elect-in the peoples candidate, Atiku Abubakar,” the party said.
PDP demanded explanation from INEC for turning back registered voters who went to collect their PVCs and directing them to come at a later date for an exercise that was programmed to end on Friday.
