Nigerian politician, Professor Pat Utomi has reacted after a bag containing thousands of Permanent Voter Cards, PVCs, was discovered in a forest in Nnewi, Anambra State.
Recall that two hunters, whose names have not been ascertained, discovered a bag full of PVCs in a forest in Akamili, a community in Nnewi, ahead of Saturday’s general election.
The hunters saw the bag on Tuesday and later took it to the premises of a popular radio station, Authority FM.
Reacting to the development, Utomi urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to find a solution, suggesting that it should repost people.
Speaking on Arise Television’s Morning Show on Thursday, the Convener of BIG-TENT, a coalition of Political Parties, Social Movements and Civil Society Organisations for Peter Obi-Baba-Ahmed Datti, Utomi said: “But what solution do we have, It might be some optimal, we have to go on. But if they [INEC] are wise, they should repost people and share with margin.
“If they are wise to give credibility to this process. Going forward, we don’t expect a perfect outcome, we are going to module through, but how is this module reassuring that we can keep Nigeria functional and a resort of progress for its people.”
