PVC Collection: INEC Warns Personnel Against Imprecise Behaviour

The Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) distribution process has been warned against by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abia.
In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Aba, Mr. Bamidele Oyetunji, the INEC’s Head of Public Affairs Unit in Abia, issued the caution.
According to Oyetunji, the commission disapproves of employees who solicit or demand payment from members of the public while carrying out their jobs.
Giving out voter cards is all that our staff members need to do; they are not required to conduct any internet research.
Anyone whose card is not located or who has difficulties should be given a note to independently verify online, according to Oyetunji.

NAN reports that some residents of Aba have accused some INEC officials of collecting N500 from prospective voters before issuing them their cards.
Mrs Ijeoma Bernard said she was asked to pay N500 as “verification fee” before she was given her card.
Also, Nwanyioma Enyinnaya said that the INEC officials refused to attend to her because she could not pay.
Mrs Iheanaetu Roseline expressed worries that her card could not be found after the stress she passed through to get registered.
NAN reports that at Osisioma and Aba North Local Government Areas, residents turned out en masse to collect their cards.
The Abia Government declared Monday and Tuesday public holiday to enable workers to collect their PVCs ahead of the General Elections. (NAN)
