Enugu PDP to monitor distribution of permanent voter cards

14 May 2014, 14:16

Enugu - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Enugu has set up a committee to monitor the forthcoming distribution of permanent voter cards in the state.

The Chairman, Vita Abba, said in Enugu on Tuesday that the committee would galvanise support for the registration of fresh prospective voters in the 600 polling units as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Abba said the work of the committee became necessary to avoid the mistakes of the past where some prospective voters were disenfranchised due to avoidable reasons.

“The PDP is collaborating with the state government to ensure the massive enlightenment of our people for the two exercises.

“We are targeting the wards, particularly those in the rural areas,” he said.

The party chieftain said that residents of the state had shown appreciable support for the PDP, adding that the party was not losing sleep over the presence of opposition parties.

“There is no opposition party in the state as much as we know because their activities are insignificant,” he said.

Abba assured those jostling for one elective position or the other of a level playing ground as the build-up to the 2015 general election mount.

He said the number of aspirants indicating interest for various elective posts in the state was an indication that the PDP was the party to beat.

“If people are indicating interest for elective posts, it means that the state is alive politically.

“There will be a level playing ground for all aspirants. We have done it before and will do it again,” Abba said.

INEC had fixed May 23 to May 25 for the distribution of the permanent voter cards while the continuous voter registration would take place between May 28 and June 1.
