The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has extended by a week the deadline for collection of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs). Initially fixed to close by 31 January, registered voters now have up until 8 February 8 to collect their PVC.
Kayode Idowu, INEC spokesperson in a statement said the new date “supersedes the earlier deadline of Saturday, 31st January 2015, and is intended to give registered voters yet to collect their PVCs the opportunity to do so in readiness for the February 2015 general elections.”
Idowu added, “INEC hereby calls on duly registered persons not to delay in going to collect their cards before the expiration of the new deadline.
“The Commission reaffirms its determination to make the 2015 elections free, fair, credible and peaceful; and urges all stakeholders, including voters, to spare no effort in working towards the same objective.”
