132,626 Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) belonging to voters in 21 local government areas of Anambra State are still uncollected.
Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Anambra State, Elizabeth Agwu, gave the figure during a meeting with stakeholders at Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) headquarters in Awka, yesterday.
According to Dr. Ugwu, a breakdown of the figures of uncollected PVCs in most local government areas was as follows: Ayamelum – 1,960; Dunukofia – 6,222; Idemili South – 4’589; Anaocha – 885; Orumba South -6,656; Onitsha South – 12,274; Idemili North – 16,256; Aguata – 12675; Njikoka – 7,009; Ogbaru – 10,755 and Anambra East – 7,717.
Others are Nnewi South – 1,841; Awka North – 1,153; Anambra West – 1,387; Orumba North – 2,393; Oyi – 7,982; Onitsha North – 9,990; Ihiala – 4,058; Nnewi North – 8,700; Ekwusigo – 3,350 and Awka South – 4,971.
Explaining that INEC also relocated six local government area collection centres in the state as a result of insecurity and floods ravaging most parts of the country, Agwu said the affected local government areas include Ihiala, Nnewi South, Onitsha North, Orumba North, Awka North and Awka South.
“The collection of PVCs has been extended to Saturdays and Sundays in Anambra State. We need enough security to carry out this function. If people fail to collect their PVCs, they will be shortchanging themselves, and doing a disservice to the people of their area. The 2023 general elections will be free, fair and credible, not only in Anambra State but the entire country. We have done the necessary work, and we hope to deliver,” she said.
