The Kwara State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mallam Garba Attahiru, says the commission has discovered 29,000 multiple registrations of the permanent voter cards by the residents of the state.
He added that 50 per cent of those who registered for PVCs between June and December last year did multiple registrations.
Attahiru disclosed this in Ilorin, Kwara State capital, on Monday at a lecture organised by the Michael Imoudu Institute For Labour Studies (MINILS) to mark this yearâ€™s Democracy Day.
â€œWe have 29,000 multiple registrations in Kwara State so far. Fifty per cent of those who registered for PVCs between June and December did multiple registration. The fine for multiple registration is one yearâ€™s imprisonment or N1m or both. Those affected cannot get their PVCs.â€
