The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Wednesday said it had directed its states’ offices to begin the distribution of uncollected Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) to their owners.
Mr Nick Dazang, Deputy Director of Voter Education and Publicity in the commission, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
Dazang said that the directive was part of efforts by the commission to ensure that uncollected PVCs were distributed to the registered voters.
“It will be recalled that after the 2015 general election, we had over 12 million uncollected PVCs.
“ What the commission did was to direct all states of the federation, including the FCT to strategise ways of distributing the uncollected PVCs that are with them.
“It is an ongoing exercise,’’ he said.
