Barely two days to the presidential polls, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has gone to churches in Enugu state with yet-to-be-collected Permanent Voters Cards, PVCs in  order locate their owners and distribute them.

This, as learnt was done to make room for eligible voters to collect their PVCs without much stress in the commission’s bid to ensure that the polls scheduled for Saturday, March 28, 2015 would be as credible as possible.

Also, INEC held a stakeholders meeting in Enugu,on Wednesday, March 25, 2015 where the Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, Professor Chukwuemeka Onukaogu, gave a account of the level of preparedness before Saturday’s election, as reported by Vanguard.

He said, “We have so far distributed 1,238,707, thus achieving 89 percent. We have 2,958 polling units and 3,361 voting points we are fully set.“We have received non-sensitive materials, while the sensitive materials have arrived but housed in the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN.“Therefore, by Wednesday (yesterday) at 10 am we shall all go to CBN in company of security agents and party agents to take delivery and subsequent sharing.”Onukaogu also demonstrated how the card readers works as well as the procedure for casting votes at the polling booths.

He, however, reinstated the commissions resolve that “anybody coming with a cloned card will be arrested immediately it is ascertained that it is a clone card.”
