The Independent National Electoral Commissioner (INEC) has extended deadline for collection of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to Monday, February 11, 2019.

As a means of alerting Nigerians of the initial February 8 deadline, the commission partnered with the Nigeria Communication Commission, NCC, in sending SMS to every citizen of the country.

The SMS sent out reads: “Are you a registered voter & yet to collect your PVC? Please visit INEC’s LGA office where you registered to collect your PVC from 9am – 3pm, Monday to Friday until 8th February 2019. Remember, NO PVC, NO VOTING!!!”

Meanwhile before the text message, as a means of sensitizing Nigerians on the need to have a voters card, INEC had employed the use of public address systems from streets to street, hosted media programs, amongst other means.

Details of the extended collection date coming later…
