In response to widespread complaints from stakeholders and registrants, who are yet to collect their Permanent Voters Cards, PVCs, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has further extended the deadline for the collection of the cards by one week.
Accordingly, the exercise now has a new deadline of Sunday, February 5, 2023 while the collection period has also been extended by an additional two hours and will start at 9 am and end at 5 pm daily including Saturdays and Sundays.
This was as the commission told those who engaged in multiple registrations not to bother visiting its local government offices to collect their cards because their PVCs were not printed.
The INEC warned that this extension would be the final concession it would be granting to those who are yet to collect their PVCs.
The ongoing collection of PVCs nationwide will therefore continue and end on 5th February 2023.
“This is the second time the Commission is extending PVC collection nationwide and this will be the last extension of the exercise.
“Collection period has further been extended by an additional two hours and will start at 9 am and end at 5pm daily including Saturdays and Sundays.
“Those that engaged in double and multiple registrations should not bother visiting any of the Commission’s Offices as the Commission did not print their PVCs.
“The Commission will continue to act on all reported cases of sharp practices during the ongoing PVC collection and will ensure that no Nigerian is disadvantaged and all those that carried out valid registration have an opportunity of collecting their PVCs.
