THE collection of the Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs) has commenced today Friday at Wards Level ahead of the general elections across Nigeria.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) commenced the distribution of PVCs to registrants at the 8,809 electoral wards across Nigeria on Friday, January 6, 2023.

INEC National Commissioner, Festus Okoye, in a statement on Thursday, said “the Commission also resolved to devolve PVC collection to the 8,809 Registration Areas/Wards from Friday 6th to Sunday 15th January 2023.

“The devolution of PVC collection to the wards commences tomorrow 6th January 2023, and all validly registered voters, who are yet to collect their PVCs, are encouraged to seize the opportunity of the devolution to the wards to do so.

“After the 15th of January 2023, the exercise will revert to the Local Government Offices of the Commission until 22nd January 2023.

“All eligible and valid registrants can collect their PVCs from 9.00a.m to 3.00p.m daily, including Saturdays and Sundays.”

Okoye said all those who applied for the replacement of lost, damaged or defaced PVCs can collect their PVCs at the wards during the same period.

He noted that the PVCs of those that applied for transfer are available for collection in the local governments and registration areas where they intend to vote and not in the state or local government where they carried out the transfer.
