INEC Laments Low Turnout, Says 20 Million PVCs Unclaimed

The Independent National Electoral Commission on Wednesday raised fears about the 2023 elections following the 20 million Permanent Voters Cards which yet to be claimed by their owners.

The commission also decried the poor participation of citizens in the ongoing continuous voters’ registration exercise.

INEC’s Deputy Director (Voter Education), Mary Nkem, stated these in Abuja during the launch of the PVC Bus Drive project, organised by a non-governmental organisation, the Advocacy for Civic Engagement.

She therefore called on Nigerians, especially the youth, to be actively involved in the process of electing new leaders.

According to her, it is votes and not social media that would determine the winners of the 2023 general elections.
