BREAKING: INEC Extends PVC Collection By Another Week
The Permanent Voters Card (PVC) collecting deadline has been extended by another week to February 5 by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
The deadline for collecting PVCs had already been extended by INEC, but Festus Okoye, a National Commissioner with the electoral umpire, stated that this was the second time it had been extended by one week.
“Arising from reports from the various States and discussions with Resident Electoral Commissioners, the Commission has decided to further extend PVC collection in all its Local Government Offices nationwide by an additional one week. The ongoing collection of PVCs nationwide will therefore continue and end on 5th February 2023,” Okoye in a statement on Saturday said.
