It will be recalled that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) promised Nigerians who registered during the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise in 2017 that their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) would be ready for collection in May 2018.
The Commission met with its Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) on Thursday 10th May 2018 and it was decided that the PVCs for all Nigerians who registered within this period will be ready for collection from Monday 21st May 2018. This also includes those who applied for transfers and replacements of lost or damaged PVCs
All such persons are to report at the INEC Local Government Offices and other designated Registration Centres nationwide with their Temporary Voter Cards (TVCs) to collect their PVCs.
The Commission also wishes to assure all Nigerians who registered in 2018 that their PVCs will be ready for collection in good time before the 2019 General Elections.
For further enquires, citizens can contact the nearest INEC office, or the INEC Citizens Contact Centre (ICCC) via its hotline 0700-CALL-INEC, Twitter, Facebook and website.
