There are more than 165,000 unclaimed PVCs in the state, according to Mallam Garba Attahiru Madami, the INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Kwara State.
Madami disclosed this on Thursday when discussing the state’s election preparations with Daily Trust.
According to him, “We discovered there are over 165,000 unclaimed PVCs in Kwara, and for this reason, I have to devise ways to make collection less cumbersome.
“So, I directed that all the names and VIN of the unclaimed PVCs be typed out and pasted on our notice board for those affected to come and check before we schedule them on when to collect them.
“Ilorin West alone has over 42,000 unclaimed PVCs, and we typed out the entire names. After the decision, over 680 were collected last week from the 50 or 70 per week before.”
