Again, INEC Extends Deadline for Collection of PVCs

Former INEC Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega

The Independent National Electoral Commission, has again extended the deadline for collection of Permanent Voter Cards by registered voters to March 8.

The extension, which follows the postponement of the 2015 general elections to March 28 and April 11, was made known in a statement by the Secretary to the Commission, Augusta Ogakwu.

Ms. Ogakwu said “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.”

More than 68 million Nigerians registered for the elections but about 45 million valid voters have collected their cards.

As of last Monday, 45,098,876 cards, representing 66.7 per cent collection rate, had been distributed by INEC.

INEC said it had taken delivery of all the cards and made them available for collection in the various states of the nation. It urged those that are yet to collect their cards to do so.

    This goes to show that INEC wasn’t ready for the elections. So they wanted to deny 23m Nigerians from voting and later award it to Apc. Even at that GEJ would have won. The only snag would have been in the total votes count. GMB cant get 25% in 24 states.
