INEC COMMENCES INVESTIGATION INTO ALLEGED BURIED VOTER CARDS.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, says, it is taking action about reports and videos trending online about Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) allegedly buried underground in some locations, including the compound of a high-profile person.

The INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye in a statement yesterday said the Commission is not taking the allegations lightly and has commenced an immediate investigation.

Mr. Okoye said anyone found culpable in the diabolical scheme which was clearly intended to disenfranchise Nigerians will be sanctioned, affirming that every eligible Nigerian who registered as a voter is entitled to his/her PVC.

The INEC Commissioner appealed to those who found the allegedly buried PVCs to deliver them to the Commission’s office nearest to them.
