The Oyo State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mutiu Agboke, has revealed there are still 700,000 uncollected PVCs in Oyo State, while attributing the level of credibility recorded in the 2019 general elections to the involvement of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in monitoring and preventing vote-buying.
During a thank-you visit to the Ibadan zonal office of the EFCC, Agboke said: “The commission is going to start the process of continuous voters registration very soon. Those who were unable to register will register. Those whose cards are still in our custody will be able to come and collect their PVCs. As I speak, we have over 700,000 PVCs uncollected.”
Speaking on the collaboration between the two commissions he noted: “The mandate given us was that we should collaborate and interface with all the agencies of government to deliver acceptable elections. I know at the national level, your chairman too was also interfacing with my chairman (Prof. Mahmud Yakubu) and that was what was responsible for the successes we recorded.”
