Elections: Deadline For PVC Collection Now 8 March

More Nigerians now have the opportunity to cast their vote during the general elections next month, as the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has further extended the deadline for collection of Permanent Voter Cards, PVCs until 8 March, 2015.
This is contained in a statement signed by the Secretary to the Commission, Mrs Augusta Ogakwu in Abuja on Monday.
The statement quoted Ogakwu as saying the four weeks extension of the deadline followed the rescheduling of the 2015 general elections.
She stated that “the collection of the cards will continue for four more weeks until 8 March, 2015.
“The Commission expresses hope that the extension will finally avail every registered voter, yet to collect his/her PVC, the opportunity to do so in readiness for the general elections.”
INEC had on 1 February extended the deadline for collection of PVCs to 8 February, 2015 following the earlier deadline of 31 January, 2015.
INEC had also on Saturday, 7 February, rescheduled the 2015 general elections by six weeks citing security concerns.
The Commission rescheduled the Presidential and National Assembly elections from 14 February to 28 March, and Governorship and State Houses of Assembly polls from 28 February to 11 April.
