The Independent National Electoral Commission has postponed the deadline for the collection of permanent voters cards.
The commission’s secretary, Mrs Augusta Ogakwu, announced in a statement that the deadline had been extended by one month to the 8th of March.
INEC had on Saturday, February 7, 2015, rescheduled the 2015 general elections due to security challenges. The national elections (i.e. Presidential and National Assembly) have been rescheduled to hold on March 28, 2015 while the state elections (Governorship and State Assembly) will now hold on April 11th 2015.
“The Commission hopes that this extension will finally avail every registered person yet to collect his/her PVC the opportunity to do so in readiness for the general elections,” Ogakwu said.
