The Lagos Resident Electoral Commissioner, Sam Olumekun, yesterday said that over 1.4 million Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) remained unclaimed.
Olumekun, who disclosed this yesterday at the end of an Inter Agency Consultative Forum on Elections, said that the commission recorded a total number of 6,609,115 registered voters between April 2017 and August 2018.
He said: “We are going to improve on our strategies. This is why we are here to meet with security chiefs in Lagos state under the umbrella of inter-agency consultative forum. In the past few months, some activities have taken place including the continuous voters registration exercise which we undertook from April 2017 to August 2018. Lagos State recorded additional 786, 839 new registrants. This figure has been collated and it is the authentic figure.
