  • PublishedJanuary 19, 2023

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has revealed that more than 386,000 Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) are awaiting collection in Ondo State.

Mrs Olufunmike Segun-Osifeso, head of INEC’s Voter Education, Publicity, Gender and Civil Society Organisations in the state made the declaration on Thursday, while speaking to newsmen.

According to her, “As at the last count on Friday, 1,686,082 PVCs out of the 2,072,092 PVCs received from Abuja have been collected leaving 386,010 cards yet to be collected.

“A lot of youths and women have been collecting their cards since the collection moved to the ward level more than two weeks ago.’’ She said.

She attributed the faster rate of collection to INEC’s sensitisation programme which involved youths and women.

She said INEC had also created an Inclusivity Department to make for easier collection of the cards by the physically challenged.

“Large numbers of people with disability are now involved in the electoral process, the result of efforts by INEC for inclusivity,’’ she added.
