Many residents of Abuja have alleged that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)is making it hard for them to be registered for Continuous Voters Card (CVR)
They informed the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Abuja that they left their houses as early as 4 a.m. to be registered just for “INEC to announce they were not operating’’.
The resident had been noticed hitting the INEC administrative center gate shouting “we want our PVCs’’, whilst a few of them lay at the street threatening not to depart the street till they get their PVCs, thereby, obstructing the motion of cars.
Most of the resident stated they’d registered and sought after to gather their PVCs, whilst many others need to do recent registration.
Mr. Emmanuel Ogbon, a youth said that he got to the INEC office at about 5 a.m. and was given a book to write his name.
“We wrote our names and they asked us to join the queue which we did, they later said that their machines were not on ground, that they would have to go and get them.
“We have been here and they have not been addressing us, what we need is our PVCs because we want to vote this time.
“They said that youths are lazy, but this time we don’t want to be lazy, we want to vote. Until they give us our PVCs, we are not going to leave here,’’ he said
Another resident, Mr. Emmanuel Ibrahim alleged that INEC was intentionally making it difficult for them to be registered to get their PVCs.
“They are intentionally frustrating us, they have the machines, we saw them, the crowd was there, and the machines were there.
“Now see the crowd since morning, yet nobody is attending to them.
“Even if they say that they are not extending the deadline, today is not June 30, we still have many days to go, at least allow that 30th to come then you can tell us otherwise.
“See the crowd yet no single person has been attended to and then you want credible elections.
