Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Imo State has said over 300,000 permanent voter cards (PVCs) are yet to be uncollected in the 27 local governments of the state.
This was confirmed in a statement by the Public Relations Officer,of the commission in In IMO state Dr. Chinenye Chijioke-Osuji, in Owerri.y yesterday.
She urged people to pick their PVCs, to enable them vote in the coming general election.
The commission also, appealed to the citizens to take advantage of the ongoing display of the preliminary register of voters to cross check the register and put in their claims and objections where necessary, saying this would enable INEC to come up with a clean register for the elections.
“INEC in Imo State craves the indulgence of the citizens, please, as this is a civic responsibility we owe ourselves,” the statement said.
There has been low turnout of PVC collection in state,no thanks to the insecurity in some parts of the state.
