INEC, PVC Will Be Ready In October or November

INSIDEMAINLAND– The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, on Saturday said the Permanent Voters Cards, PVC, for persons captured in the ongoing Continuous Voters Registration, CVR, would be ready in October and November.

Festus Okoye, INEC national commissioner, Information and Publicity, disclosed this while monitoring the concluding segment of the ongoing CVR on Saturday.

Mr Okoye, who doubles as the national commissioner supervising Abia, Anambra and Benue, reaffirmed that the exercise would end on Sunday.

According to him, INEC has to bring the exercise to a close, to enable the commission to cross check data collated.

“This will enable our system operators to eliminate double and multiple registrations before we produce the PVCs for distribution.

“The law equally requires that we should display the register in the 774 Local Government Areas and 8,809 registration areas for claims and objections.

“And we have to print the PVCs, truck them to all the local government areas across the country for collection,” he said.

Mr Okoye who stated that it would be useless for people to register and failed to receive their PVC, added that without the card, nobody would vote.

He said those who registered between January and June, that there cards would be ready in October, while those who registered from July 1 to July 31 would collect in November.

Mr Okoye told the people to endeavour to participate during the elections when they eventually received their cards, insisting that votes must count in future elections
