The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has explained why Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos state, and Alhaji Mohammed Sa’ad, the Sultan of Sokoto were unable to collect their PVCs.
The INEC Deputy Director in charge of Voters Education and Publicity, Nick Dazang, gave the explanation at a one-day workshop for newsmen in Kaduna.
Dazang explained that the commission encountered the problem of loss of data which was caused by some INEC staff. He said, “the initial lost of data led to loss of finger prints and that was why the Sultan of Sokoto, Governor Fashola of Lagos and others could not get their PVCs. Attitude of some INEC staff led to loss of the data.”
He, however, stated that despite the challenge encountered by INEC, the commission has achieved 65 percent distribution of PVCs nationwide and expressed optimism that the percentage of PVC distribution would increase substantially before the election.
