The North is now almost 9 million Permanent Voters’ cards (PVCs) ahead of the South, with barely five weeks to Nigeria’s rescheduled presidential election holding on March 28.  

“No. of PVCs distributed in the North including the FCT as at 4th February 2015 = 26,866,708. No. of PVCs distributed in the South as at the referenced date = 18, 000, 703. This shows that the North surpasses the South in updated PVCs distribution with to the tune of 8,866,005,” the International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law (Intersociety) said today in its update on PVC distribution.

“Shockingly too, Borno State, which is torn apart by Islamist Boko Haram insurgency, has more PVCS (1,320,667) than the non insurgency State of Anambra (1,222,002),” the group further said in the third and concluding part of its statement ‘How INEC Tainted & Sectionalised Nigeria’s National Register of Voters’, issued in Onitsha. According to Intersociety:

  1. No. of Post-AFIS Registered Voters in 2014 (old) = 70,383,427
  2. No. of Registered Voters readied for 2015 Polls (new) = 68,833,476 (recalculated figure by Intersociety = 68,817,157)
  3. No. of Post-AFIS Registered Voters in 2014 (old) for the North including the FCT = 40,531,606
  4. No. of Post-AFIS Registered Voters in 2014 (old) for the South = 29,858,822
  5. No. of Registered Voters readied for 2015 Polls (new) for the North including the FCT = 37,377,169
  6. No. of Registered Voters readied for 2015 Polls (new) for the South = 31,539,941
  7. This shows that the North (37,377,169) surpasses the South (31,539,941) with 5,837,228 registered voters.
  8. No. of Registered Voters summarily deleted by INEC in November/December 2014 in Nigeria = 3,796,767
  9. No. of Registered Voters summarily deleted by INEC in November/December 2014 in the North = 3,725,201

10.  No. of Registered Voters summarily deleted by INEC in  the same period in the South (Oyo State) = 71,566

11.  No. of newly  Registered Voters captured in the North in 2014 = 372,789

12.  No. of newly Registered Voters captured in the South in 2014 = 1,757,713

13.  Total number of newly Registered Voters captured in Nigeria in 2014 = 2,130,502

14.  The remainder of Post-AFIS Registered Voters of 2014 (70,383,427) after deletion of 3,796,767 and addition of 2, 130, 502 newly Registered Voters = 66,586,660.
