PVC collection has been extended to Feb 5 — INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has extended the deadline for collecting Permanent Voters Cards, PVCs, by one week in response to widespread complaints from stakeholders and registrants who have yet to collect their cards.

As a result, the exercise will no longer be completed today. The new deadline has been set for February 5. The collection period has also been extended by two hours, and will now begin at 9 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. 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 grant to those who are yet to collect their PVCs.
