APC accuses an unnamed political party of buying voter cards


The All Progressives Congress, APC, has accused an unnamed political party of engaging in buying Permanent Voter’s Cards, PVCs, with a view to disenfranchising the owners of such cards, especially in opposition strongholds.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Friday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said while such purchased PVCs may not be transferable, those who are buying them are doing so to reduce the votes in the opposition strongholds and improve the chances of their own party at the polls.

“We appeal to our supporters in particular and all Nigerians in general not to sell their PVCs, because this will amount to mortgaging the future of their children just because of a paltry 1,000 Naira,” it said. “Your voter’s card is your power to help forge the much-needed positive change in our country. Protect it!”

Meanwhile, the APC has urged all its members and supporters who are yet to collect their PVCs and register to vote to do so urgently, saying they should visit their local government headquarters for the two exercises.

The party said while distribution of the cards and the continuous registration at the polling units may have ended, both exercises are still ongoing at the local government headquarters until Jan. 31st 2015, according to the assurances given by INEC.

“We have been assured by INEC that all those who registered will get their PVCs and the chance to vote in the 2015 general elections. We are therefore appealing to all our members and supporters who have not collected their cards to immediately proceed to their local government headquarters to collect them,” it said.

      VERY Desperate!
      This was how they were spreading falsehood over the Ekiti elections.
      Now PT will not tell the world how the Ekiti tribunal FLUNG the APC case back at them!
      Since PT won’t announce this landmark judgement, i will soon release my own ‘breaking news’!

  • Questioner

    Where are the 1,200 ballots at the APC presidential primary?

    APC party is yet to account for 1,200 votes missing at its presidential primary election.
    It said it accredited over 7,000 delegates but declared just 6,000 votes ballot papers.
    So, where’s the remainder 1,200 ballot papers? APC never accounted for it till today.
    That can’t be a transparent election process but sheer shenanigan in shambles.

    • Fact Check

      “Buhari won the presidential primary with 3,430 votes. A total of 6,008 votes were cast out of 7,214 registered delegates. There were 16 invalid votes.”
