Large turn out greeted distribution of the Permanent Voter’s Cards (PVCs) in Kwara State, North Central Nigeria, as registered voters trooped out to collect their cards in various polling units across the state.
African Examiner correspondent who visited some of the Independent National Electoral commission (INEC) distribution centres in Ilorin, the state capital reports that registered voters were delighted to exchange their temporary voter’s cards with PVCs.
Basirat Raji in a chat with African Examiner disclosed the PVC would enable voters to exercise their civic right in 2015 general elections.
She commended the state governor, Abdulfatai Ahmed for creating awareness about the exercise.
It would be recalled that the state governor declared public holiday last week Friday to allow the state’s civil servants to collect their PVCs.
African Examiner investigations revealed that the large turnout of registered voters was due to the massive mobilization by the APC controlled state government.
