The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday decried the non-collection of 437,354 Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) in Osun State.

Mutiu Agboke, the Osun Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), stated this while speaking at the Commission’s public sensitisation exercise in Osogbo.

“Most people have refused to collect their PVCs,” he said. “In Osun State, as I talk to you, we have 437,354 PVCs uncollected. This number of PVCs are sufficient to make somebody a governor in Osun state.”

Mr Agboke appealed to eligible voters to go and collect their PVCs and vote in the coming 2023 elections saying, “with the technology INEC has adopted, there is a guarantee that their votes would count.

“I assure you, nobody will win this coming election in 2023 as INEC will not declare anybody the winner, except whoever the people have voted for.

“Forget about all the misgivings that you have about the process; INEC has rededicated the pattern of voting,” Mr Agboke added.

“Our technology will guarantee the sacredness of your votes. Nobody can steal or hijack your vote again. Nobody can be declared winner except the person you vote for,” he said.
