The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in Anambra State has complained about the number of uncollected Permanent Voter’s Cards it still had in its position as the elections approach in early 2023.
Making this complaint, the Resident Electoral Commissioner in Anambra State, Queen Agwu, said the commission still had about 132,623 (one hundred and thirty-two thousand, six hundred and twenty-three) PVCs yet to be claimed in the 21 local government areas of the state.
Mrs. Agwu said that to encourage the people to pick up their PVCs, the commission would be opening its offices on Saturdays and Sundays, while it expects the delivery of the new batch of PVCs.
She also addressed security concerns, stating that coalition centers in 6 local governments were moved because of the fear of attacks, adding that more security was needed for Saturdays and Sundays.
She advised the Ndigbo that they were shortchanging their votes and doing a disservice to the entire people of the South East.
Mrs. Agwu also assured the public that the 2023 general elections would be free, fair, and credible, not only in Anambra State but the entire country.
