The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has declared that it would be impossible to rig the 2019 elections.
Enugu State Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, Emeka Ononamadu, made the declaration during a function in Imo State, on Wednesday.
He advised the electorate to quickly go and collect their Permanent Voters Card, PVC.
Speaking with Vanguard, Ononamadu called on the electorates to key into the ongoing Continuous Voters’ Registration exercise in the state, stressing that it would help them to discharge their constitutional obligation.
According to Ononamadu, the Commission has made the process so easier for the electorate to obtain their PVC, as such they should go and collect their PVCs.
He said, “Without the voters’ card, citizens will not be allowed to cast their votes in the next general election.
“INEC has made the process of registration very easy for everybody, it is good that I tell you that the beauty of democracy is in participating elections.
“The choice of electing leaders lies solely on the voters’ who have been registered, I want you to know that registration is free and that INEC does not require any assistance to register anybody.”
“With the machinery put in place by INEC, rigging has become impossible”, he said adding that ‘”peoples’ vote will count in the 2019 election.”
