……..In Kwara State
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Kwara State has
taken delivery of 65,974 new Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).
INEC Administrative Secretary in the state, Mr Paul Atser, who made this
known in Ilorin on Monday while receiving the new PVCs, said the cards
were for those that registered in 2017.
He said the PVCs to be distributed did not include transfers,
unprinted PVCs and reported cases of missing and defaced card
“Registrants in these categories need not go to the collection centres
yet, they will be adequately informed when their own cards are
ready,” Atser said.
He also warned those in these categories not to be tempted to
register again as this would amount to double registration and an
Atser, however, called on those who registered in 2017 to visit the
registration centres across the 16 local government areas to collect
He added that all registered voters wishing to collect their PVCs
should go to the registration centres themselves as there would not
be collection by proxy.
Atser also advised them to go with their Temporary Voter Cards
(TVCs) to make the search for their PVCs easy.
The ongoing Continuous Voters Registration exercise started nationwide
on April 27, 2017.
