Police Prevent Angry Youths From Attacking INEC Office In Borno Over PVC





HEAVY security guards prevented hundreds of angry youth from attacking the Maiduguri office of the Independent National Electoral Commission –INEC, on Friday.

The youths were protesting against the non-arrival of their Permanent Voter Cards –PVC’s, despite INEC’s promises that the cards would be made available to the people of the state on time.

They claimed to have gathered from some INEC officials that the commission already had the PVC’s in its possession, but failed to distribute them to their rightful owners.

The Information Officer of INEC in Borno, Mr. Tommy Magbu, confirmed that the electoral body has not been able to distribute PVCs to some units in the state.

He blamed the delay on the non-arrival of the cards from Abuja.

“As I speak to you now, our drivers are already waiting in Abuja to collect the PVCs for onward delivery to Borno,’’ Magbu said.
