Here is the number of PVC collected by state, as released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ahead of this years general election.

Just as earlier promised, INEC has finally released the full list of permanent voter cards (PVCs) collected across Nigeria.

Before now, many of us only had statistics of the number of registered voters – which cannot be largely relied upon – well, here is the number of PVC collected by state, this 2019, as at 11-02-2019.

According to the electoral body, at least 72 million Nigerians have collected their permanent voter cards (PVCs) ahead of the 2019 elections.

Mahmood Yakubu, chairman of the commission, said the 72.7 million who have collected their PVCs represent 86.3 percent of the over 84 million registered voters in the country.

Katsina, the home state of President Buhari, recorded 98.69% collection rate, while Adamawa where Atiku Abubakar, his main challenger, comes from, recorded 90.66%.

In raw figure, Lagos state had the highest number of collections with 5.5 million, followed by Kano with 4.6 million.

INEC had said the total number of registered voters in the country stood at 84,004,084 — just 42 percent of Nigeria’s population which currently stands at 198 million.

Mahmood gave the exact number of total PVCs collected as 72,775,585, with 11.2 million cards uncollected.

The 72.7 million collection rate is 16,344,330 more than the 56,431,255 collected in 2015.

This shows an increase of 22 percent in the number of the PVCs collected compared to 2015.

Below is a table of the state-by-state breakdown of PVC collection released by INEC;

‘Game Of Throne’ finale streaming blocked in China over its trade war with Trump

Published

Film watchers in China were not allowed to see the final episode of Game Of Throne on Sunday, over the nation’s growing trade war with the US and President Donald Trump.

Instead of finding out who ended up sitting on the Iron Throne, Chinese ‘Thrones’ watchers received a message informing them of ‘transmission medium problems.’

The message was posted by Tencent Video, the subsidiary of Tencent Holdings Ltd, which has had exclusive streaming rights to the premium cable network’s content in China since 2014.

‘We will notify you of another broadcasting time,’ Tencent said in a more detailed communique posted on its Weibo social media account one hour before the last episode was supposed to air.

HBO told the Wall Street Journal on Monday that the China Thrones blackout wasn’t a technical issue on the company’s part.

An HBO spokesperson confirmed Tencent blocked transmission of the series finale.

The Verge reports that thousands of Chinese Thrones fans have vented their frustrations on Weibo, China’s largest social media company.

Many threatened to cancel their Tencent accounts if their monthly subscription fees weren’t refunded.

The debacle is the latest fallout in the intensifying battle over US trade tariffs placed on Chinese goods by the Trump administration.
