Eligible voters, who had collected their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) in Cross River State, were on Monday given free petrol and kerosene by Ben Ayade, Governor of the state.

Many residents beseiged the area to partake in the distribution, which took place at the old Zoo Botanical Garden in Calabar.

People were seen rushing to the venue with their PVCs, while those who were yet to collect theirs, went with the temporary voter cards.

The event was conducted under the aegis of Ayade’s Special Assistants Network (SAN), and residents were allowed to choose which to receive. Many motorists opted for petrol.

According to Daily Trust, the move was to encourage eligible voters to register before the August 31 deadline.
