Nigeria Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC says it will appeal a court judgement granting two plaintiffs the request to use their temporary voter cards .
This is contained in a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to INEC Chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi on Thursday, 9th March, 2023.
INEC had insisted that only registered voters who present their Permanent Voter Cards, PVCs at their respective polling units would be allowed to vote during elections.
Justice Obiora Egwuatu, had given the order allowing the use of TVCs while delivering Judgement in a suit filed by two Nigerians seeking the use of temporary voter cards in the general elections in the absence of permanent voter cards.
Justice Egwuatu said the order was made on the grounds that the plaintiffs were duly registered and captured in INEC’S database.
