Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) to distribute PVCs

An agreement has been reached between the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) and the  Lagos office of the Independent National Electoral Commission to constitute a joint committee to distribute about 1.47 million Permanent Voter Cards that have yet to be collected by registered voters in the state.

This is coming just as LASIEC ruled out the usage of card readers in the local government election.

 INEC and LASIEC reached the agreement during a meeting between the two electoral bodies.

The meeting, which was attended by LASIEC  chairman, electoral commissioners, the permanent secretary of LASIEC, INEC administrative secretary and some principal officers of INEC, Lagos office, held at the headquarters of  LASIEC.

A statement on Sunday said the LASIEC Chairman, Justice Ayotunde Phillips (retd.), had sought the cooperation of the Administrative Secretary of INEC, Lagos State office, Mr. Clement Oha, for the constitution of the committee to ensure the distribution of the PVCs to voters who had yet to get their PVCs.

The chairman said, “This initiative will assist in reducing voter apathy and enhance the credibility of the electoral process at grass roots level.

“LASIEC will not be able to use the card reader machines for the conduct of the forthcoming election in view of the closeness of the date of the election.”

In his comment, Oha assured LASIEC that INEC team would work with LASIEC to ensure that the 1.47 million PVCs were distributed to their owners.

The administrative secretary added that the commission had decentralised the distribution of the PVCs from the headquarters of the 20 local government areas to 245 registration areas.
