Cyril Omorogbe, the Bayelsa State Resident Electoral Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has said 186,798 Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) have not been claimed in the state.
Omorogbe said this at the press briefing in the state on Sunday, noting that the commission would commence PVC distribution at ward level.
“We have received 295,318 PVCs. Of this, we have distributed 108,520 PVCs with a balance of 186,798 PVCs left. But the commission has commenced the distribution of PVCs at the various registration (ward) headquarters in the state to ameliorate the challenges face by coming to INEC offices in the local government areas to collect their PVCs," he said.
He urged all “registered voters who have not collected their PVCs, those who did transfers and also cases of defaced and lost PVCs to visit the town halls of their various ward headquarters to collect their PVCs".
