INEC: over 600,000 PVCs unclaimed in Oyo



The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said over 600,000 permanent voter’s cards (PVCs) have not been claimed and or collected by registered voters in Oyo State.

The commission said 649,183 PVCs of registered voters across the state were still in its custody.

The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mr. Mutiu Agboke, broke the news when he led an INEC top delegation to visit Oyo State Chief Judge (CJ), Justice Munta Abimbola.

Agboke recalled that since the beginning of the current Continuous Voter Registration (CVR), over 13,000 new voters had been registered.

The REC said the current CVR, which started on January 8, will end tomorrow.

He added that the second phase would be held soon to enable more Nigerians, who have attained the voting age and those who have never registered before to do so.
