The Labour Party has accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of slowing down the distribution of the Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).

Spokesperson for the Labour Party campaign, Yunusa Tanko made this known on at a press briefing on Wednesday, January 11 in Enugu state.

“INEC deliberately designed weak operations” so as not to create the impression that it has a “hidden script unknown to the public.”

As the general election draws near, Tanko called on INEC to ensure all PVCs are distributed before the deadlines.

“INEC has less than two weeks to deliver PVCs to Nigerians and the reports we are receiving nationwide about the ineptitude of its staff are disheartening and frustrating most PVC collectors.

“We have received reports from all the geopolitical zones in Nigeria and the messages are all the same, people complaining of the snail pace at which the PVCs are being distributed.

“The collection of PVCs began on Monday, December 12, 2022, and collection is expected to close on Sunday, January 22.
