The Independent National Electoral Commission, or INEC, has announced that the distribution of Permanent Voters Cards, or PVCs, will begin on Friday, January 6, and continue through January 15.
Goldennewsng reports that in a statement that was released on Thursday by the Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mrs. Geraldine Ekelemu, the Head of Department, Voter Education and Publicity, of the commission in Rivers State, Mr. Mark Usulor, made this clear.
From January 16 to January 22, Usulor claims that the INEC Local Government offices will be responsible for collecting PVC from the Registration Area/Wards.
He urged people who were unable to pick up their PVCs at the Commission’s LGA offices to take advantage of the new development and do so at the Registration Areas or Wards by the deadline.
He pleaded with all parties involved to ensure that the Commission staff could successfully complete the exercise at the state’s 319 Registration Areas/Wards within the allotted time frame in a peaceful and conducive environment. NAN)
