Lack of commitment by Nigerians to collect PVCs worrisome – CAN

The Kogi State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has decried the apparent lack of commitment by Nigerians to collect about eight million permanent voters cards (PVCs) in centres across the country.

Bishop John Ibenu, who is the CAN Chairman in the state, expressed this reservation when the association paid a courtesy call on the Kogi State office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Lokoja yesterday.

He said there was need for INEC to step up sensitisation campaign on the need for people to collect their PVCs ahead of the 2019 elections.

“We read in the dailies that about eight million PVCs have not been collected, largely 70 to 80 per cent of which are from the Middle Belt down to the South South.

“I remember that in the last elections, Borno State, where the Boko Haram insurgency was prevalent, the rate of collection of PVC was 89 per cent. We want you to do that magic for us; the magic that the insurgency did not stop them from collecting their voters’ cards,” he said.
