A former Senator and Special Adviser to ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo on National Assembly Matters, Florence Ita-Giwa, has said over 70 per cent of her constituents are yet to get their Permanent Voter?s Cards (PVCs).

 Describing the postponement of the general elections as an act of God, Ita-Giwa said it would enable the over 5000 Bakassi people to collect their cards and vote for their preferred leaders at the Dayspring Island where they registered.

?The poll postponement is a blessing because it will now afford my people the opportunity of voting on March 28 and in April.  The few that has collected theirs are those that are in the refugee camp and their neigbours.

?Thousands from the Southern part of Bakassi who left for Cameroon just to earn income since they are all fishermen registered at Dayspring and they are willing to return to get their PVCs and vote at Dayspring.

?Now that the borders are open and the sea is sailable, I have started arranging boats to convey them so they can come and collect their PVCs. Over 5,000 of us cannot and should not be disenfranchised.

?They are all keen to return home as soon as the federal government develops the Dayspring Island and until then, I have built a town hall with few rooms at Abana, the headquarters to accommodate some people and should officials want to make use of the hall for their various assignments.
