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;

R. Kelly’s Attorney demands for copies of his sex tape as RnB star appears in court Friday

Published

R.Kelly and his legal team on Friday during his pretrial hearing demanded to get their hands and eyes on the alleged sex tapes that prompted the 10 counts of sexual abuse.

Kelly’s attorney, Steven Greenberg, tells TMZ there’s no guarantee what they will get right off the bat, could be police reports, case material from Kelly’s 2008 trial but, obviously, the items they’re most anxious to see are the 2 tapes Michael Avenatti turned over to Cook County prosecutors.

Greenberg says he hasn’t seen the tapes,  which Avenatti claims show Kelly engaged in various sex acts with a 14-year-old girl, so he can’t really begin to mount a defense strategy. Once he does get them, a couple different things could happen.

Kelly also asked the judge to let him travel to Dubai for work. Recall he had to surrender his passport when he got arrested.

However, the judge did not rule on whether Kelly’s team will get copies just yet. Greenberg added the sex tapes should be protected from public viewing.
