INEC extends deadline for collection of permanent voter cards

INEC Chairman, Attahiru Jega

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has extended the deadline for collection of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to Sunday, February 8, a statement by Kayode Idowu, the spokesperson for the INEC Chairman, has said.

“This supersedes the earlier deadline of Saturday, 31st January 2015, and is intended to give registered voters yet to collect their PVCs the opportunity to do so in readiness for the February 2015 general elections,” the statement said.

Mr. Idowu added, “INEC hereby calls on duly registered persons not to delay in going to collect their cards before the expiration of the new deadline.

“The Commission reaffirms its determination to make the 2015 elections free, fair, credible and peaceful; and urges all stakeholders, including voters, to spare no effort in working towards the same objective.”

    Solution does not only lie in this type of extension. There are 20 million PVCs that are yet to be collected and WILL NOT be all collected, reason being that a majority of the owners are Southerners who have run away from the inner North either because of Boko Haram attacks or the current phone text messages warning of the danger that awaits them should Jonathan wins.

    Jega must devise a means whereby these Southerners will vote in the forthcoming elections. They have a right to vote and INEC has a duty, an obligation to let them participate and vote.

    In order to avoid the catastrophe of another costly false start, INEC needs to postpone the forthcoming elections. APC should not be allowed to stampede the body into holding elections when it is clear that it is not ready.
