Extension: PVC collection deadline now march 22 – INEC

For the third time in six weeks,
the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC) has
announced an extension of the deadline for collection of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).
The latest extension is by two weeks.

On February 1, 2015, INEC made its
first extension of deadline for PVC
collection . Originally scheduled for
Saturday January 31, 2015, collection
was then to end on until Sunday

February 8, 2015.
On February 9, following the
postponement of the elections, INEC
again extended the deadline for
PVC collection by four more weeks
until March 8, 2015.
Announcing the latest extension,
Kayode Idowu, chief press secretary
to the INEC chairman, said the
exercise would continue until March
22, 2015, superseding the earlier
deadline of March 8, 2015.

“This latest extension offers the last
opportunity for duly registered
persons to collect their PVCs before
the general election scheduled for
March 28 and April 11, 2015,” he

INEC urged “all 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 election”.
