Nigerian entrepreneur, Honourable Ajuechi Akpobome has charged INEC to decentralize the production of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to accelerate issuance.

He said it was disheartening that after the commencement of the ongoing nationwide Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) INEC has not issued PVCs to many registrants.

The Delta-born businessman, therefore, urged INEC to speed up its registration and decentralize the issuance of the cards to avoid a crisis.

Akpobome cited an example of the issuance of ATM cards by banks which used to take up to one week after the request was made, but now took only a few minutes to be issued.

“Technology has gone so far. Our electoral body has a lot of work to do because I don’t know what INEC’s challenge is. Months after commencing nationwide CVR, many people have not been able to get their PVCs.

“It is looking like a ploy to keep people disenfranchised and an attempt to suppress the people’s democratic rights. They have to do something.

He called on INEC to decentralize the production of the PVCs to zonal or state offices to ease and facilitate the process.

“Since it is not working, we must consider the alternative. We need to decentralize the production looking at how big the country is,’’ he added.

Honorable Akpobome is a foremost Delta-born business tycoon and renowned politician, well known for his selfless and humanitarian acts of service across Nigeria.
