The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC on Sunday said that as at March 21, 2015 the commission distributed 56,431,255 PVCs which is 81.89per cent of the total 68,833,476 Permanent Voters Cards, PVCs produced. The commission said about 12.4million PVCs have not been collected. The commission said the non-collection of the remaining PVCs could be due to relocation and the death of the owners of the PVCs.
According to the press secretary of INEC Kayode Idowu the collection of PVCs closed on Sunday and that eleven states recorded over 90per cent collection. These states are: Akwa Ibom, Bauchi, Gombe, Imo, Kaduna, Jigawa, Katsina, Kebbi, Sokoto, Taraba, and Zamfara. Zamfara state had the highest collection rate.
He also said eleven states recorded around 80per cent collection. These are Abia, Adamawa, Anambra, Bayelsa, Cross River, Delta, Enugu, Kano, Nasarawa, Niger and Rivers states, while states such as Benue, Borno, Ebonyi, Ekiti, Kwara, Ondo, Osun, Plateau and Yola recorded around 70per cent collection. Six states recorded around 60 per cent collection. These are Edo, Fct, Kogi, Lagos, Ogun, and Oyo states.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
