Attempt by the People’s Democratic
Party, PDP, to get its members in the House of
Representatives to endorse the rejection of the
use of the Card Readers and Permanent Voter
Cards, PVCs, by the Independent National
Electoral Commission, INEC, for the deferred
polls failed to get the support of the members

after dumping them during its just-concluded
primaries..read more on Vanguard
