Olusegun Agbaje, the Resident Electoral Commissioner in Osun, made this known on Friday at a press conference in Osogbo.

Agbaje said 1,246,915 PVCs were collected from INEC by registered voters in the state as at Wednesday when collection of the cards for the election ended.

The commissioner, who said 1,682,495 voters were registered, warned that those who had yet to collect their PVCs would not be allowed to vote.

“The uncollected PVCs are safe in the commission’s custody, as we anticipate a credible election on Saturday.

“Those who are yet to collect their PVCs would not be allowed to vote.”

Agbaje also warned against vote selling and buying, saying those caught risk imprisonment of one year or N500,000 fine.

“Those also caught violating the secrecy of their votes may be jailed for six months or fined N100,000 or both,” he added.

Agbaje, who thanked the media for its support, however, insisted that only INEC could announce election results.
