Giri, who spoke with newsmen after a security meeting in his office, said it was unfortunate that some politicians go about enticing people with a token in order to collect their PVCs.
The security meeting was attended by the police, military, Civil Defense  Corps the Immigration officers.
He said the call was based on information he received from some people that some party agents, had in the past few weeks, been going from house to house collecting peoples’ voter cards.
“The issue of this buying of PVCs by some party agents and politicians is among the issues discussed at the security meeting. Because I received similar report from Tungan-Maje and Zuba, and I directed all the security agents to arrest anybody found trying to buy voters cards from the people, irrespective of the political party such person belongs to,” he said.          
He advised all eligible voters in the council area to keep their PVCs in a safe place and be wary of desperate politicians, who will want to entice them with money and collect their cards.
The chairman commended residents of the council, especially members and supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for their maturity and patience over the postponement of the general elections earlier scheduled for last Saturday by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
