Ondo guber: INEC distributes 1m PVCs ahead poll

The Independent National Elec­toral Commis­sion (INEC) distributed 1, 200, 693 Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to voters in Ondo as at Aug. 11, an official said on Tuesday.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Mr. Olusegun Ag­baje, made this known at a press conference in Akure ahead of the gov­ernorship election in the state. The governorship election is scheduled to hold on Nov. 26. Accord­ing to Agbaje, 331, 078 PVCs are yet to be col­lected by their owners as at Aug. 11.
He said that a total of 1, 531, 771 PVCs were received in the state be­fore the 2016 Continu­ous Voter Registration. Agbaje congratulated the political parties to par­ticipate in the election for the successful com­pletion of their primary elections.
He advised politicians to have violence-free campaigns ahead of the poll.
“It is my belief that a peaceful campaign is a likely harbinger to con­duct of a peaceful elec­tion,” he said. Agbaje said that INEC had a good re­lationship with all politi­cal parties in the state.
