2019: INEC Gets Over 65000 New PVCs For Distribution

……..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

their cards.


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.
