INEC To Begin Distribution Of Voter Cards In May
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Friday said it would begin the distribution of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) across the country in May.
Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Abia, Dr Joseph Iloh, said this at the 5th triennial delegates’ congress of Abia council of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Umuahia on Friday.
Delivering a lecture on “Voter Registration: Foundation for Credible Election and Good Governance”, Iloh said that PVCs for those who registered before Dec. 31, 2017 had been produced for most states in the federation.
He, however, said that distribution of the cards would commence when production of the cards for the remaining states had been completed.
The REC explained that the delay in the production and distribution of the cards was occasioned by the fact that the job was being handled by one team.
He said that the decision to entrust the job to one team was to avoid a mismanagement of the process by multiple hands.
He appealed to the media and the public to exercise patience with INEC over the distribution of the PVCs.
