Over 300,000 PVCs Uncollected In Imo - INEC

INEC expressed its concerns over a large number of uncollected Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) in the state.

The resident electoral commissioner (REC) in Imo, Sylvia Agu, disclosed this at a stakeholders’ meeting on Wednesday in Owerri, the state’s capital.

She said the commission had received and started distribution of 152,221 PVCs from the new registrations between January and July 2022.

“Imo has nearly 300,000 uncollected PVCs in the 27 local government areas from the previous Continuous Voter Register (CVR) exercise in 2011 to December 2022,” she said.

“We have recently received and started distributing 85,729 PVCs from new registrations, 66,492 updates and transfers done from January to  July 2022.”

Agu said the incessant attacks on the commission’s offices in the state are of “great concern”.

She said the attacks will not in any way disrupt the electoral schedule in the state.

“These attacks are of great concern to the commission,  considering its negative consequences on the commission’s preparations for the 2023 general elections,” she added.

“If not, the damage on these offices would have been more extensive.”
