OSOGBO – Prospective voters in Osogbo thronged the various electoral wards in the town to collect their permanent voters cards (PVC).

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced earlier that temporary voters cards would not be used for the state’s Aug. 9 governorship election.

Mrs Adenike Tadese, Chief Public Affairs Officer of the Commission in Osun, said PVCs would be distributed across electoral ward collation centres in the state.

According to the announcement, the exercise will take place on July 26 and July 27 after which uncollected PVCs would be available at local government offices of INEC. [eap_ad_1] A pensioner, Mrs Iyabode Olusegun, said she wanted to avoid travelling to the local government office.

“That is why I have decided to stay till I collect the card today (Sunday).’’

A businessman, who spoke with NAN on condition of anonymity, said it was thoughtful of INEC to set the two days aside for collection of PVC.

He said the decision had afforded more eligible voters the opportunity to acquire the cards.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) correspondent visited some wards, including Okinni in Egbedore Local Government Area where the exercise was also peaceful and orderly. (NAN)
