The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in Plateau State has warned those without the Permanent Voters Cards, PVCs to stay away from polling units during tomorrow’s elections.

In a statement signed by the Head, Voter Education and Publicity, Osaretin Imahiyereobo, the commission said that it had taken adequate measures to ensure that the card readers do not pose any challenge during the exercise.
According to him, “The Commission has reviewed the operation of the card readers in the March, 28th elections, identified the challenges and has taken adequate measures to address them.
“Card readers are to be deployed for the April, 11 Governorship and State House of Assembly elections in the State.”
