Less than than 10 days to the general elections, Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, yesterday, warned Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu not to disenfranchise him and the rest of his family.
Speaking on the delay encountered in collecting his Permanent Voters Card, Adams, in a statement by his special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, said he is yet to receive his PVC, several months after registration, saying the delay is suspicious.
He said: “I think it is suspicious, and I feel bad that as I am speaking to you now, I am yet to receive my PVC, and likewise my wife and the rest of my family. This is not good for us as Nigerians. It portends grave danger for our democracy and the nation in particular”.
“Remember, the whole world is watching, especially, at a time when elections are a few days away. I am saying this not because I have any preferred candidate in the coming elections, but because it is my right and that of other Nigerians to vote and be voted for, and I know many Nigerians would have been disenfranchised as a result of INEC’s failure to make PVCs available to the electorate.”
