The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has lamented that as at 31st December, 2018 about 309, 221 Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) have not been collected in Plateau state.
Alhaji Hussaini Halilu Pai, its Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in the state made the lamentation during the commission’s meeting with about 33 political parties in Jos on Thursday.
Alhaji Pai disclosed that out of about 459, 634 PVCs issued to the state only 150, 413 were collected, adding that about 309, 221 PVCs have remained uncollected by prospective voters in the state.
He decried that the commission didn’t produce PVCs for fun. “It was produced for the purpose of election and I wonder why people wouldn’t come to collect theirs.”
He said, “People must know that it is only when you have your PVC that you will be allowed to vote on election days. They should know nobody would vote by proxy.”
Alhaji Pai also urged political parties to ask their members to collect their PVCs.
He described political parties as critical stakeholders in the conduct of any election, hence the need for politicians to play the game of politics according to the rules.
