 N170,000 or N1,000? Lawmakers argue over cost of reproducing one PVC - INEC PVC117254



A member of the House of Representatives, Olanrewaju Ibrahim from Ekiti State, on Wednesday claimed it will take N170,000 to reproduce one PVC amidst the attacks on offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Mr Ibrahim, while moving a motion to investigate the attacks on INEC facilities, claimed that over 65,000 PVCs got burnt in the attack on INEC office at Abeokuta South Local in Ogun State.

He stated that INEC lost other assets in the attack. He warned that the attacks are coordinated to make the 2023 election impossible.

"On 10 November 2022, the Independent National Electoral Commission office in Abeokuta South Local Government Area of Ogun State, was set ablaze by hoodlums with not less than 65, 000 uncollected PVCs razed down by the fire.

"In 2019, a single PVC was estimated to cost about N170, 000 which may cost more for the Commission to produce," he said.

The claim was however countered by Aisha Dukku, the Chairman of the Committee on Electoral Matters. She said the cost of production is less than N1,000 per PVC.

But Dukku was unable to provide answers on the exact cost. A motion was subsequently moved to strike out the N170,000 per PVC.

The motion was moved and taken by the House.

To investigate the attacks, the House set up an adhoc committee to investigate the attacks. The committee is headed by Taiwo Oluga from Osun State.
