WaffiTV:The Peoples Democratic Party has encouraged the Independent National Electoral Commission to expand the due date for the collection of Permanent Voters’ Cards by three days.
The party made the call in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan on Wednesday in Abuja.
Ologbondiyan said the demand was predicated on reports across the nation that some compromised INEC officials at the collection centers were purposely refusing to issue the PVCs to voters.
This as per him is frustrating millions of registered voters from getting their voters’ cards.
“The PDP believes that the deliberate refusal to release PVCs is part of the wider plot by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to disenfranchise millions of Nigerians and frustrate their eagerness to elect PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
“The PDP demands explanation from INEC for turning back registered voters who went to collect their PVCs and directing them to come at a later date for an exercise that is programmed to end on Friday,” he said.
