The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has extended the deadline for collection of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) across the country by additional two weeks.
The collection will continue until March 22nd 2015, superseding the earlier deadline of March 08th 2015.
According to a statement by Mr. Kayode Idowu, Chief Press Secretary to INEC Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega, this latest extension offers the last opportunity for duly registered persons to collect their PVCs before the general elections scheduled for March 28th and April 11th, 2015.
INEC hereby calls on registered persons that are yet to collect their PVCs to use this last opportunity in doing so, in order to participate in the forthcoming general elections.
