The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Plateau state, Malam Halilu Pai has sought the help of political parties to ensure potential voters collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) in the state.
Pai asked the parties to encourage their members to collect yet to be claimed 309, 221 PVCs in the state.
He made this plea in Jos, the state capital at a meeting with representatives of the political parties.
He said, “43 days to the commencement of the general election, we have 309, 221 PVCs that have not been collected in this state”.
“As political parties canvassing for votes, we want to appeal to you to educate your supporters to collect these cards because only those with their PVCs will vote on election days,” he said.
Halilu added that the commission would monitor political rallies and campaigns to ensure sanity while appealing for peaceful campaigns during the electioneering process.
“We are going to track all your campaign rallies and other activities. This is to enable us draw your attention when you are derailing from the electoral guidelines.
“Because we want a peaceful and successful election, we want to advise all political parties to hold their rallies in a peaceful manner, devoid of violence, hate speeches and other negatives,” he advised.
