Politicians buying PVCs from registered voters, INEC raises alarm
Written by City Radio on December 13, 2022
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said Nigerian politicians are buying Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) from registered voters to harvest their Voter Identification Numbers (VIN) ahead of the 2023 general elections.
INEC, while warning both politicians and unsuspecting and criminal Nigerians of the dubious acts, reiterated that no person will vote on election days without PVC.
The National Commissioner overseeing the FCT, Nasarawa, Kaduna and Plateau states, Mohammed Haruna made this known on Monday at an event to launch the #YourVoteMatters project by an election observer group, NESSACTION, in Abuja.
Haruna also revealed that two people were recently convicted for illegal possession of PVCs in Sokoto and Kano states.
