INEC extends deadline for the collection of PVCs nationwide


January 30, 2023

The Independent National Electoral Commission has further extended the deadline for the collection of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) nationwide to Feb. 4.

Its National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, who noted that the decision was made at the commission meeting with the Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) at the weekend, said the Commission is encouraged by the progress made so far as more Nigerians troop out daily to collect their PVCs.

Also noting that the extension was for the second time, Okoye added that  collection time has also been extended by an additional two hours, to start from 9am and end at 5 pm daily including Saturdays and Sundays, but those who engaged in double and multiple registrations should not bother visiting any of the commission’s offices as INEC did not print their PVCs.
