  • 2019 ELECTION: The nonchalant attitude of Imo people on collection of PVCs is most worrisome— INEC
  • OWERRI —THE nonchalant attitude of Imo
    people to the collection of their Permanent
    Voters’ Cards, PVC, is now a source of worry
    for the Independent National Electoral
    Commission, INEC.
    INEC PVCs
    The Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, for
    Imo State, Professor Francis Ezeonu, stated
    this in Owerri, while addressing the clergy,
    security personnel, royal fathers and other
    stakeholders, to round off his sensitization tour
    of the 27 local council areas of the state.
    “The nonchalant attitude of Imo people to the
    collection of PVCs is most worrisome. People
    must realize that in order to vote in credible
    candidates, there is the need for the citizenry
    to arm themselves with their PVCs”, Professor
    Ezeonu said.
    While announcing that he has concluded the
    statewide sensitisation tour, Ezeonu also said
    that registration of voters is now a continuous
    exercise.
    “I must also remind eligible voters that
    registration of eligible voters is now a
    continuous process. The exercise will continue,
    even after the 2019 general elections”, Ezeonu
    said.
    He passionately appealed to politicians to
    encourage their supporters to appreciate the
    importance of the exercise, as well as making
    sure they protect their votes.
    While saying that voting will only take place in
    designated places stipulated by the
    Commission, the REC however added that “new
    settlements have been identified and are being
    taken into consideration”.
    Welcoming the stakeholders earlier, the
    Electoral Officer in Owerri Municipal, Mr.
    Andrew Ereforokuma, disclosed that “In the first
    phase of the exercise, we registered 17,913.
    The males accounted for 9,024, while 8,889
    women were registered.”
