Permanent Voters' Card
Permanent Voters’ Card

As the Distribution of the permanent voters Card PVC ended in Cross River State yesterday, the state Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, Barrister Mike Igini has advised electorate to guard their Permanent Voters Cards jealously as the commission may not be able to ‎issue another one before 2015 general election with the present electoral law guiding its operation.

Igini stated this during a media briefing to intimate the public on the do’s and don’ts for the electorate and the INEC officials ‎during the distribution of Voters Cards and the continuous voters Registration exercise.

He said voters should guide their PVC jealously, stressing that the process involved in getting new card may not be easy to come by before 2015 general election.

The INEC commissioner assured all participants of adequate security, pointing out that anyone found to have run against the law will face the music.

‎Commenting On the the issue of ‎ Bakassi, Igini said the distribution will only be done in Day spring one, two and Qua island including the Returnees Camp.

He added that INEC electoral atlas does not recognize the new Bakassi and Law No7 of Cross River state which according to him “Donate three wards of Ikang North, South and Central to another local government without the consent of INEC which has statutory power according to section 144 of the 1999 constitution was a clearly negation of the provision”.

He posited out that the issue regarding Bakassi Local Government created by Cross River Law No. 7 is a matter of the provision in the Constitution which covers both INEC and States.
