The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has extended the deadline for the collection of the Permanent Voters Card PVC by another week to February 5.
The deadline for collecting PVCs was previously extended by INEC, but a National Commissioner with the electoral umpire, Festus Okoye, claimed it has now been extended by one week for the second time.
“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.
“This is the second time the Commission is extending PVC collection nationwide and this will be the last extension of the exercise. The collection period has further been extended by an additional two hours and will start at 9 am and end at 5 pm daily including Saturdays and Sundays,” he added.
The extension will allow more Nigerians a chance to collect their voter cards in the buildup to the 2023 general election.
