24 hours to end of PVC registration, Abuja residents blast INEC over inability to register
Some residents of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja, on Friday expressed anger over their inability to register for the Permanent Voter Cards, PVC.
In what appears to be a last-minute rush, many residents thronged Continuous Voters Registration (CVR) centres on Friday to register for the PVC ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Across the nation’s capital on Friday, many registration centres were overcrowded with people struggling to get their PVCs, raising fears that many people may not be registered.
The Daily Post visited some of the registration centres in the city, particularly within the Bwari Area Council.
Amongst the hundreds of people who stormed the CVR centre in Bwari, only a few were able to get captured following low input by the Independent National Electoral Commission and INEC officials.
As of 2pm, when Naijacrawl visited the Bwari centre, only about 60 people had successfully registered despite the teeming crowd.
Our correspondent gathered that the centre became rowdy at about 10 a.m. when residents waiting to register became upset that the few available INEC officials could not attend to them.
