2019: Who Have These 364,265 Unclaimed PVCs In INEC Office In Ondo?
The general election is just 102 days away and there are persons that are not ready for the election yet.
Some of them might be part of those persons who talk about changing the changer or even keeping the changer.
If you ask them of their Permanent Voter's Cards (PVC), the kind of silence you will get will be worse than that in the song 'Silent Night, Holy Night'.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) are now calling them to come and carry their voting tool before the election time comes.
In Ondo State are some of these people who have taken the pains to register and make INEC officials work tirelessly to produce their PVCs, but they have refused to show up to collect their PVCs.
On Monday, INEC said at least 364,265 PVCs were still unclaimed in Ondo State.
INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in the state, Mr Rufus Akeju, told reporters in Akure that 1,372,158 out of the 1,736,423, registered voters in the state had been issued with their PVCs.
"We still have 364,265 PVC yet to be collected by their rightful owners," he said.
Akeju said INEC would display voters’ register across the state from November 6 to November 12 for claims and objections.
"The commission has fixed November 6 to November 12 for the display of voters’ register for people to inspect for necessary claim in terms of wrongly spelt name, incorrect age and address," he said.

Akeju further stated that the action was in line with the provisions of section 19 of the Electoral Act 2010 as amended.
During the period, voters are expected to visit polling units where they registered to check the details of their registration and complain if there is any misrepresentation in the displayed register against their names.
Voters are also expected to raise objections to the inclusion of names of persons who are dead but are still in the displayed register and others who are not suppose to be in the register.
"Members of the public should also note that the exercise is not another registration of voters but an exercise to correct errors that may be discovered in the register,” he added.
