Watch the Moment Camera Captures INEC Staff Demanding N1000 For PVC Collection , see video below.
GoldenNewsNg reports that a staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, was captured in a video collecting payment from registered voters before they can pick up their Permanent Voters’ Card, or PVC.
This happened at the PVC collection centre for the Commission in Emene, Enugu East Local Government Area, Enugu State.
Meanwhile, Victor Aluko, the INEC’s Director for Voter Education and Publicity, referred to charges that its employees were working with certain individuals to block eligible Nigerians from collecting their PVCs as incorrect in one of Channels Television’s Politics Today programs.
“Well, personally, I don’t believe so. I don’t believe that anybody is colluding with anyone to prevent eligible Nigerians from collecting their PVCs. I don’t think so,” he said.
However, he asserted that any of its employees found to be impeding Nigerians from getting their PVCs would face punishment and legal action.
However, in the video, a different elderly woman (a registered voter) questioned the staff member, who appeared to be a woman, about when the commission began collecting money for PVC.
“I didn’t know that one now has to pay to collect the card,
“This is a bad impression to the public, it’s not good,” she said.
The aforementioned official used abusive language when he instructed individuals who weren’t willing to pay to go to the local government to pick up theirs.
“If you don’t want to pay, you go to the local government and collect it,” she said.
As soon as she realized she was being recorded, she yelled, “If you tape me, I will fight it out with you.
“Did you pay me for this job? God punish you.”
