APC ALLEGES: ‘A certain party’ selling PVCs for N1,000

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has alleged that “a certain political party” is buying permanent voter cards (PVCs) with a view to disenfranchising the owners of such cards, especially in opposition strongholds. The party argued that the purchased PVCs might not be transferable, but those who were buying them were doing so to reduce the votes in the opposition strongholds and improve the chances of their own party at the polls. ”We appeal to our supporters in particular and all Nigerians in general not to sell their PVCs, because this will amount to mortgaging the future of their children just because of a paltry N1, 000. Your voter card is your power to help forge the much-needed positive change in our country. Protect it,’’ it said through Lai Mohammed, its spokesman, on Friday. The party also urged all its members and supporters who were yet to collect their PVCs or register to vote, to do so urgently, saying they should visit their local government headquarters for the two exercises. It stated that while distribution of the cards and the continuous registration at the polling units might have ended, both exercises were still ongoing at the local government headquarters until January 31, 2015, according to the assurances given by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). “We have been assured by INEC that all those who registered will get their PVCs and the chance to vote in the 2015 general election,” it said. “We are therefore appealing to all our members and supporters who have not collected their cards to immediately proceed to their local government headquarters to collect them.”
