PVC: Massive turnout for collection in Enugu East LGA
No fewer than 200 people on Sunday came to pick their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) at the Enugu East Local Government Area of Enugu State.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) official at the LGA, Mr. John Isong said that the commission had been witnessing large crowd since morning.
Isong said that as early as 8 a.m, people were already at the station waiting for arrival of INEC officials.
According to him, before now we do start by 8 a.m. but because today is Sunday, most of the staff went to church service before they come.
The INEC official expressed dissatisfaction that in spite of intensive sensitisation on the PVCs, people never cared to come and collect theirs until this last hour.
“I do not know why people refused to do things until the last minute,’’ he said.
One of the eligible voters who came to collect his PVC, Mr Stanley Onah said that he had been there since 8 a.m. struggling to pick his PVC.
Onah commended INEC for adequate arrangement and orderliness adding that the commission grouped them into 10 wards to make it faster and easy for people to collect their cards.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the PVCs were being distributed among the 10 wards in the council area.
