Distribution of the Permanent Voters Card (PVC) will hold across Ebonyi State from August 15 to 17, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said yesterday, warning that anyone who fails to get it would not be allowed to vote in the 2015 general elections.

The State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mr. Sylvester Ezeani, represented by the INEC Head of Voters Education and Publicity, Mr. Andy Ezeani, told newsmen in Abakaliki that Ebonyi fell under the second phase of the nationwide distribution exercise.

Calling on political parties and the media to mobilize citizens of the state ahead the exercise, he added that immediately after the distribution of PVC, the commission would begin the Continuous Voters Registration exercise, lasting from August 20 to 25.

According to him, “the PVC is important to the commission because it will lead to the success of the 2015 general election by eliminating some of the past challenges faced by INEC during elections.

“It is not the commission that will disenfranchise anybody. The card is a veritable source of identification. It is important people come out and collect their cards on that day.”
