INEC May Burn Unclaimed Pvcs Before 2019 Elections by information1: 7:57am On Mar 13
The Independent National Electoral Commission is considering burning unclaimed Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) before next year’s general elections.

Dr. Rufus Akeju, the new Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Ondo State told newsmen on Monday in Akure that INEC is considering the option since all attempts had been made in vain by the commission thorough sensitization campaign to reach out to the affected voters to collect their PVCs.

He said the commission was making efforts almost on a daily basis for voters to get their PVCs, adding that the commission may be compelled to resort to the burning of the cards or destroying them to check being used to manipulate elections.

The REC said that the burning process would be made public for all Nigerians to witness.

Akeju said in Ondo state, 1,659,186 people have been registered as eligible voters, and 1,288,722 cards had been distributed so far, adding that 370,464 PVCs are unclaimed.

He also said the commission was doing everything possible to ensure a credible election that would meet with global best practices.

“ We now have new and improve data capturing for moderate and effective capturing.

“We have introduced additional card readers in case one is malfunctioning in a particular unit,’’ he said.

The REC solicited the support of all journalists in the state, saying they remain major stakeholders in educating the general public.

He, however, urged journalists to report accurate stories they gather from INEC offices in the state without bias.

The Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in the state, Mr. James Sowole, promised that the union would continue to support the commission in its activities.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Akeju was the immediate past REC in Osun before his posting to Ondo State.

Why no keep it, it cost nothing to do that.

Why not make use of the online registration for transfer first. It's possible to track PVC details on Inec portal but it not possible to request for transfer thereon.

INEC should go more digital than manual to achieve more

Where is this country heading to?! Only a useless organization with ulterior motive like INEC will burn public document processed with tax payers money. INEC is raising this false report so that they will have free hand to divert unclaimed voter cards for onward distribution for almajiris and foreigners for election rigging! Well done INEC.
Planning to Rig elections well before 2019 for buhari.


Nigeria is no doubt a shiithole under buhari's APC govt.

This is such a stupid comment! These people think they can always take the public for a ride. The last registration /election in Osun state, I wasted time, energy and money going around just to get my pvc. They just kept tossing me around until I gave up. They had packed everything and gone to use it somewhere else to rig elections. They are not going to burn sh_it. It's just a cover for their corrupt deeds. If it were to be a normal country sef, is burning the last resort to unclaimed cards?? It cannot be posted to their various addresses??

That's how they will claim to burn them, whereas they'll actually distribute them to almajiris in the north.

Very backward thinking! You never thought for once the amount of money that was used to print these cards. Can't these cards be recycled instead?

So you mean the cards are only mean for 2019?? Like they won't be useful after then, are the cards taking a lot of space that you can't find a small room to put them?? If INEC should burn the ones in the south they should also burn the ones in the North

Unnecessary wastage. This is where courier will be of utmost help. A functional country would have used courier to distribute all PVS to it owners.
