“With this publication now, the commission is set for 2019 elections. “We enjoin eligible voters who are yet to pick up their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to do so before it will be too late.

” Now, following the ongoing display of voters register across the 8462 polling units in the state, those PVCs have been moved to all the wards in each local government to bring it closer to the people for collection.

“Not minding the fact that the period for claims and objections during this period of display of voters register ends on Nov. 12, the commission has extended by one week the opportunity to distribute PVCs at the ward level,” he said.(NAN)
