Sokoto State police commissioner Mohammed Ussaini Gumel said that a man who was found in possession of over 100 Permanent Voter Cards (PVC), has been arrested.
Gumel stated that the real owners of the PVCs are yet to be identified. But he believed that the owners of the PVCs were not residents of Sabon Birnin alone where the suspect was arrested.
He called on members of the public, especially those with cases of missing PVCs, to visit the command headquarters where copies of the cards will be displayed for owners to identify and reclaim them.
According to the CP, the prosecution of the suspect will be facilitated by the proofs and testimonies of owners who show up at the command headquarters to claim their PVCs.
Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said it has not printed the PVCs of Nigerians who participated in the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise from January 15 to July 31, 2022.
INEC National Commissioner, Festus Okoye, made this known on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme on Wednesday.
Okoye said, “If you are a registered voter, in other words if you belong to the class of 84 million Nigerians that have already registered, you can track your data in our database.
“Secondly, if you were one of those that registered with the Commission during the Continuous Voter Registration exercise between 28th day of June 2021 and 14th day of January 2022, you can track where your Permanent Voter Card is and you will still be in a position to collect it.”
