In an attempt to distribute the permanent voters cards, PVCs, to let eligible voters yet to collect theirs do so without hassles, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in Enugu State, has decided to move to various churches in order to locate owners of the cards yet to be collected.
During the INEC stakeholders meeting in Enugu, yesterday, the Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, Professor Chukwuemeka Onukaogu, gave account of the level of preparedness before Saturday’s election.
He said: “We have so far distributed 1,238,707, thus achieving 89 percent. We have 2,958 polling units and 3,361 voting points we are fully set.
“We have received non-sensitive materials, while the sensitive materials have arrived but housed in the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN.
“Therefore, by Wednesday (yesterday) at 10 am we shall all go to CBN in company of security agents and party agents to take delivery and subsequent sharing.”
On apprehension raised at the meeting over the use of card readers, he personally demonstrated how it works and the voting procedure. He, however, warned that “anybody coming with a cloned card will be arrested immediately it is ascertained that it is a clone card.”
