The Edo State office recently received the 30,979 valid PVCs from Abuja, out of which only 1,348 have been collected.
Mr. Wariowei criticized the low PVC collection rate and called on the owners of the yet-to-be-collected cards to collect theirs on time.
“Collection of PVCs will continue after the end of CVR. So, there is still time for collection before the elections,” he said.
He however said the turnout for registration at the ward and local government levels is impressive and commendable.
