Written by City Radio on January 24, 2023
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abia has cautioned its staff members to shun sharp practices during the Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) distribution.
The INEC’s Head, Public Affairs Unit in Abia, Mr Bamidele Oyetunji issued the warning in an interview with the Newsmen in Aba on Monday.
Oyetunji said that the commission frowns at receiving or demanding gratification from the public while performing their duties.
Some residents of Aba have accused some INEC officials of collecting N500 from prospective voters before issuing them their cards.
The Abia Government declared Monday and Tuesday public holiday to enable workers to collect their PVCs ahead of the general election. (NAN)(www.nannews.ng)
