The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in Delta said on Thursday that 300,000 Permanent Voter Cards, PVCs, were yet to be claimed by prospective voters in the state.

The INEC’s Administrative Secretary in the state, Rose Orianran-Anthony, disclosed this to journalists during a road walk sensitisation campaign.

Mrs Orianran-Anthony said that the essence of the sensitisation was to create awareness among the public.

She said that it was to inform the eligible voters who were yet to collect their PVCs to do so.

According to her, the continuous voters’ registration would stop by Aug. 17 for those yet to register, while the collection of PVCs would continue until shortly before the election including Saturdays and Sundays.

She said that the rate at which eligible voters were collecting PVCs was low in the state, and advised the electorate to turn a new leaf.

Mrs Orianran-Anthony said that the road walk was going on in all the local government areas of the state.
