The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Ondo State said it had distributed a total of 1,201,073 Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to registered voters. The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mr. Olusegun Agbaje, made this announcement at a stakeholders’ meeting in Akure Wednesday.
He added that 344,006 PVCs haven’t been collected yet and encouraged those yet to collect theirs to do so as distribution continues. He said:

“It is important to stress at this juncture that only the PVCs would be used to vote during the governorship poll, while the smart card readers would be used for accreditation of voters,’’

He also said that selling of PVCs or any form of manipulation of the card is a serious offence punishable under the law with fines and/or prison term.

He assured electorates in the state that INEC will remain fair and unbiased to everyone during elections.
