After Ahmed Bola Tinubu told his supporters on Wednesday that the number of voters have diminished 8n recent years because people’s permanent voters cards have expired, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied such claims.
Ahmed Tinubu recently declared his intentions to contest the position of President in the forthcoming General elections.
The former Lagos State Governor is expected to vie for his party, the All Progressives Congress’ ticket.
However, early signs show many don’t fancy him because of his age and his track record as a leader.
The chief technical adviser to the chairman of INEC, Prof. Bolade Eyinla, countered Tinubu’s claims, insisting PVCs don’t expire.
He said, “This information is not correct. The PVC issued to all previously registered voters remains valid. This kind of statement will certainly push eligible voters to register more than once thereby creating the problem of double and multiple registrations.”
