With few hours to the deadline for Permanent Voters Card collection, eligible voters in Akure, the Ondo state capital have blamed the independent national electoral commission for the backlogs of uncollected pvcs in their various offices following its lack of decentralization of collection points and inadequate arrangements.
A cross section of residents of Ondo state who made the revelation to Orange FM in akure at Inec office oda road however called for the extension of the exercise.
Speaking with newsmen in Akure, a middle aged woman who lamented that she has been visiting INEC collection centres for the past three weeks without succeeding with her PVC however blamed the commission for its stringent conditions for her inability to collect the card.
On his part, a civil servant who simply identified himself as ajiwoye Said citizens who have not collected their PVCs are ignorant of the usefulness of the cards adding that those who registered more than once can lead to the multiplicity of uncollected PVCs.
While Mrs Tope Emmanuel said un collection of PVCs stems from the stress involved in registering and collecting the cards.
Others however clamoured for the processes leading to pvcs collection to be less strenuous so as not to dis- enfranchise more eligible voters during elections.
