APC Condemns Slow Processing Of PVC In Osun

APC-Logo The Osun Governorship election is about a month away but fears are being raised by the members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on the rate at which the permanent voters card is been processed.

The APC has asked the umpire to speed up the processing of the permanent voters cards.

In a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the APC stated that the delay might lead to some voters being disenfranchised.

“INEC has been painfully slow in processing the permanent voters cards, and one can only hope that the electoral body is not doing this deliberately.

“The slow processing of the permanent voters cards has, in particular, hit the Central Senatorial District of the state, and has affected those who had earlier registered as well as those who registered this year”, he stated.

The party said this because of the reported announcement by the Electoral Commissioner in Osun State that whoever does not have a permanent voter’s card would not be allowed to vote in the August 9 election.

The party said that it hoped that INEC was not deliberately slowing the process to disenfranchise voters which would affect the turn out of voters.
