2023: INEC Begins Distribution Of Sensitive Materials In Kwara

By Adedayo Said 

The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Kwara, Attahiru Madami, says the commission has received some sensitive materials from headquarters for the 2023 general elections.

Mr Madami told journalists on Tuesday in Ilorin that sensitive materials, including 2,887 cubicles and BVAS, received from the headquarters are secured.

He added that nonsensitive materials such as markers, mats and toiletries have also been received.

Mr Madami said further that the commission had received the last batch of Kwara Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs), and the commission officials have sorted them for distribution to the 16 local government areas of the state for collection.

He, therefore, urged the public to collect PVCs in their various local governments from now till January 22, 2023, which is the closing date.

The REC said the recruitment of ad hoc staff is ongoing, and the list of successful candidates that applied online so far has been compiled for training.

“In the area of PVC collection, we have organised ourselves in such a way that it is easy to collect. We don’t allow the collection of PVC by proxy.

“Electoral Officers and Assistant Electoral Operation Admin have been rejigged from one local government to another to make the work effective,” he added.
