210,504 PVCs ready for collection in Taraba – INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied having any link with Facebook for online registration for Permanent Voter Card (PVC).

It described such Facebook account link as fake.

The commission made the denial in a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to INEC Chairman, Mr Rotimi Oyekanmi, and posted on its online news portal (http://inecnews.com).

Oyekanmi advised the public to disregard the fake Facebook platform as it was yet to commence online registration for PVCs.

“INEC wishes to inform the general public that it is not in any way associated with a Facebook page called ‘INEC Nigeria Online,’ with the Uniform Resource Locator (URL)https://web.facebook.com/INEC-Nigeria-Online-1211567328987773/.

“Some unknown persons opened this Facebook platform with all intents and purposes to lure unsuspecting Nigerians into believing that they can apply online for the Permanent Voter Card (PVC).

“The Commission hereby reiterates that it has not begun online registration of Nigerians for the purpose of obtaining the PVC, neither has it authorised any organisation, group or individual to do so.’’
