The Head, Public Affairs and Voter Education, INEC, Oyo, Ayo Folami, said on Sunday in Ibadan that the figure was the State INEC’s report as at December 2014.

“A total of 1,139,405 million eligible voters have so far collected their PVCs ahead of the forthcoming polls,” he said.

He, however, said that about 845,965 voters are yet to collect their PVCs.

The INEC spokesperson said that the percentage of eligible voters who have collected their PVCs is 57.3 per cent.

INEC had recently disclosed that 38.7 million eligible voters have so far obtained their PVCs nationwide out of the 54.3 million PVCs already processed.

The report indicated that 15.3 million eligible voters are yet to collect their PVCs.

President Goodluck Jonathan recently directed the Chairman of INEC, Attahiru Jega, to ensure that all eligible Nigerians got their PVCs before the February 14 election.
