The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has charged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to offer tangible explanation to Nigerians on how its Permanent Voter Card (PVC) allegedly became a commodity for sale online.
The PDP said its demand was against the backdrop of apprehensions being expressed by Nigerians regarding possible insider compromises in INEC, particularly ahead of the 2019 general elections.
The national publicity secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement said, “it is seriously uncomfortable with the attempts by INEC to hurriedly wave off this very grave international embarrassment that goes to the heart of credible electioneering in our country.
“We therefore call for a system-wide inquest into the matter, particularly to hedge our PVC and all other sensitive electoral materials from possible cloning.
“We also urge Nigerians to continue to be at alert, especially as the All Progressives Congress (APC) is bent on using every means to compromise the election and subvert the will of the people in the coming elections,” the party said.
