Abuja - The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been petitioned over the allegedly deliberate mismanagement in distribution of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) in five Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Lagos State.

The development is said to be a result of alleged disenfranchisement of prospective voters in 24 wards in the state, Sun News has reported.

The petition, signed by PDP senatorial candidate for Lagos West Segun Adewale, revealed that most registered voters in some wards have yet to receive their PVCs.
