OVER 145,000 PVCs READY FOR COLLECTION IN OYO -INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has disclosed that about 145,000 Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) are ready for collection.

Mrs Rosemary Adeniyi, Head of Department, Voters Education and Publicity, at INEC in Oyo State quoted the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) Dr Mutiu Agboke as making the declaration on Monday in Ibadan.

Agboke said the PVCs were for potential voters who registered at the first and second quarters of the Continuous Voter Registration between June 28 and December 2021.

He urged people who registered during the period to visit the commission’s offices across the 33 Local Government Areas of the state for collection.

The REC called on all eligible Nigerians that recently turned 18 years and above who had not registered before now to do so.

He advised those interested to use the last quarter of the exercise to register on-line via cvr.inecnigeria.org and also to visit INEC designated registration centres to complete the registration.

Agboke, however, warned against double registration, noting that anyone caught would be prosecuted.
