The Cross River State Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, Barrister Mike Igini has been commended for successfully recording 69% turn out so far in the collection of permanent voter’s card, PVC in the state.
The commendation was given in a chart with CrossRiverWatch by Mrs. Theresa Agbor, aspirant for Ikom State Constituency in the Cross River State House of Assembly.
Mrs. Agbor also lauded the REC for promising to continue the registration of those who turned 18 years old after the last exercise.
According to her, “It is commendable that in just three days, 69% can be recorded which means when the next phase of distribution kicks off as promised by Mr. Igini in another 2-3 days almost all would have collected”.
She went on to say that “Gone are those days when election is nobody’s business, now we all know that our vote counts and must be casted aright but without the voter’s card, that franchise has been denied not by INEC but you the individual.
“It therefore essential to register if you’ve not and collect your PVC which serves many purposes outside voting”.
