The Independent National Electoral Commissioner (INEC) has finally extended deadline for collection of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to Monday, February 11, 2019.

AN24 reports that the development is coming a day after the commission called on Nigerians to visit their Local Government Areas, LGAs, of registration to pick up their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs).

As a means of alerting Nigerians of the previous deadline, INEC partnered with the Nigeria Communication Commission, NCC, in sending SMS to every citizen of the country.

The SMS sent out reads: “Are you a registered voter & yet to collect your PVC? Please visit INEC’s LGA office where you registered to collect your PVC from 9 am – 3 pm, Monday to Friday until 8th February 2019. Remember, NO PVC, NO VOTING!!!”
