INEC announces date for distribution of PVCs in Lagos



The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced that it will start the distribution of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) for those that have registered before but have not collected theirs in Lagos State on April 29.

The commission’s head of publicity and protocol in Lagos, Mr. Femi Akinbiyi, while making the disclosure in a statement on Saturday, explained that the step was timely considering the fact that the state is making preparation for its July 22 local government elections.

“INEC will, as from Saturday, April 29 begin distribution of PVCs in all the 245 registration areas in the state. This is purely for the purpose of the local government elections coming up soonest in the state.

“The exercise is for those that have registered before but had not collected their PVCs. It will last for five Saturdays starting from Saturday, April 29 to Saturday, May 27,” he said.

He added, “The nationwide Continuous Voter’s Registration (CVR) exercise will commence throughout the state as from April 27 and remains continuous all the year round.”
