Staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) have been accused of aiding politicians to hoard Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) in Oniru, Lagos.



Citizens who tried to apply for their Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC) at the New Market area narrated their experience to Naijacrawl on Friday.

One of them, Simon, lamented that dozens of people were left stranded because they could not submit their personal data.

The youth said at the venue, he met a crowd grumbling and engaged in conversations to find out the situation.

On Thursday, we heard that “signed forms” were shared on Wednesday, which was declared a no-market day. The INEC people didn’t come that Wednesday.

Simon, a company supervisor, said upon enquiry, they were told that a certain councillor in the Oniru area signed the forms.
“We tried to speak with the INEC staff but they did not respond, saying they were busy." We later discovered that the forms for new registrants were with somebody, "he said.
Another complainant, who spoke on condition of anonymity, disclosed that the individual was identified by residents.
“We approached him but he kept insisting the forms would not be released without the consent of a councillor. He was only giving them out after profiling."
“At one point, the atmosphere got charged; people ran after him and were shouting that the papers were federal government property.”
The aggrieved applicant noted that many were disappointed, wondering why a person not working for INEC was in possession of the forms.
