INEC partners NCC to send sms to owners of over 10m uncollected PVCs



The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has entered a partnership with the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) to send messages to owners of the uncollected Permanent Voter Cards (PVC).

National Commissioner of INEC, Mr Soyebi Adedeji, made the disclosure during the Nigeria Civil Society Situation Room Dialogue Session on Osun Election.

Adedeji pointed out that the measure became necessary in order to remind Nigerians of their civic duty so as to ensure a successful electoral process.

He said that the number of uncollected PVCs with the commission was of great concern, adding that this number could determine who wins or loses elections.

“The Continuous Voter Registration has come to an end and INEC has other things to concentrate on since election is a matter of a chain of events.

“Before the end of the CVR the commission as at last week had 10 million uncollected PVCs in its possession, now with the end of the CRV there are additional 14 million registrant cards to be processed within 165 days.

“People need to come and collect their PVCs; it is not just about registering, collection is the most important thing. When people register, the collection is always less than 50 per cent.

“We need to find a way to see what we can do about collection so we have decided to partner with NCC to alert Nigerians on the status of their cards,” the commissioner said.
