Over 250,000 voters disenfranchised – Intersociety

A rights group, the Int’l Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety) yesterday said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should be held responsible for massive disenfranchisement of over 250,000 registered voters who had their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) and defied raging state actor and non state actor security threats and came out in their large numbers to cast their votes during the Anambra governorship election on Saturday.

Board Chairman of Intersociety in a statement released in Onitsha said over 250,000 voters were disenfranchised by INEC and its Information Communications Technology (ICT) following widespread failure of the Commissions voters’ capturing machines or “Bi-modal Voters’ Accreditation System or BVAS”.
