The truth which INEC is hiding from Nigerians on PVC distribution and 2015 polls

On Tuesday, 17th February 2015, our leadership (Intersociety) released the third volume of our explosive publication (How INEC Tainted & Sectionalized Nigeria’s National Register of Voters). Its volumes one and two had earlier been released on 15th and 16th February 2015. As the referenced third volume was enjoying its world-wide circulation and readership on electronic media news, the headship of Independent National Electoral Commission under Prof Attahiru M. Jega, released its PVC distribution update across the country same day with State-by-State breakdown. The INEC in its referenced update praised itself as having achieved 77.8 per cent in the PVC distribution across the update. On Wednesday, 18th February 2015, Chairman of INEC, Prof Attahiru M. Jega appeared before the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to update the upper Chambers on how far the Commission has gone in its preparations for the referenced rescheduled polls. The proceedings were dominated with the usual fallacious “we are fully ready for 2015 elections” pronouncements on the part of INEC team.

Having been the first rights group in Nigeria that demystified the INEC’s headship false sainthood and unmasked its gross inefficiencies and ethno-religious bias, it is our resolve again to forensically review the two referenced developments and mark out the odds buried underneath. These we do in consonance with Section 14 (3) of the Constitution of Nigeria 1999 as it concerns treating all sections of the country equally and fairly in the distribution of collective resources, properties and materials including PVC as well as formulation and implementation of egalitarian public policies including procedures and processes of distribution and collection of PVC, voting accreditation and voting. It remains our clear observation that the referenced section of the Constitution is observed by INEC in grave breach in its recent public conducts particularly the distribution of PVCs.

Grand Summary:

The North-East zone torn apart by Islamist Boko Haram insurgency is the zone with the least number of registered voters that have not received their PVCs with 1,608,092 RVs (registered voters).

The South-West zone; Nigeria’s political opposition, civil rights and media hub, is the zone with highest number of registered voters that have not received their PVCs with 5,225,348 RVs.

While, the North including the FCT has a total of 37,377,216 RVs (registered voters), the South is left with only 31,539,941 with the North surpassing the South with 5,837,275.

While the North including FCT has a whopping total of 29,936,607 PVCs as at 17th February 2015, the South is left with only 21785,350 with a difference of 8,692,616 PVCs for the North against the South.

The number of PVCs distributed in six States of the North-West zone; namely Kano, Kaduna, Katsina, Jigawa, Sokoto and Kebbi totaling 13,646,107; is higher than the total PVCs distributed in the entire eleven States of the South-South and South-East zones totaling 13,195,963.

The number of PVCs distributed in the entire 13 States of the North-West and the North-East zone totaling 22,614,451 is higher than the PVCs distributed in the entire South with 17 States totaling 21,489,769.

The total number of registered voters that have not received their PVCs in Nigeria as at 17th Feb 2015 is 16,600,080.

While a whopping total of 9,754,591 registered voters have not received their PVCs as of date in the South, only 6,899,250 have not received theirs in the North.

It may most likely be correct to conclude that 50% of those that have not received their PVCs in the North-West and the North-East zones are non indigenes dominated by Igbo pastoralists who fled the area to escape hate killing and violence orchestrated by their host populations.

Till date, about 1.3m PVCs are yet to be produced, delivered and distributed by INEC and its contractors.

It is strange and magical as per how INEC distributed a whopping total of 7,489,769 PVCs in the war stricken North-East zone out of its total RVs of 9,107,861; leaving it with only 1,608,092 registered voters without PVCs. This is the zone which precarious security situation to shift in the dates of 2015 polls.

INEC’s PVC distribution as well as voters’ registration in Nigeria under the midwifery of Prof Attahiru M. Jega, is gravely ethno-religious and lopsided; contrary to Section 14 (3) of the Constitution of Nigeria 1999 with its last amendment. 

These are the raw truth, which the headship of the Independent National Electoral Commission has refused to tell Nigerians, preferring to celebrate its monumental failures at every given opportunity such as at the Senate Plenary Session under referenced. INEC is grossly incompetent, ethno-religiously bias and corrupted.  Our Facts are not yet exhausted.
