INEC administrative secretary in Kwara, Paul Atser, says about 240,000 Permanent Voter Cards (PVCS) are yet to be collected by voters in the state.
Atser made this known in Ilorin in his opening remarks at the INEC stakeholders’ meeting on the commencement of the distribution of Permanent Voters Cards (PVCS) and Continuous Voters’ Registration (CVR) in the state.
He said INEC will release the PVCS to their rightful owners upon presentation of their Temporary Voters Card (TVCS) and fill the attestation forms to be supplied by INEC distribution officers.
The Admin Secretary said the exercise will commence nationwide on Thursday, while that of Kwara will also kick off on that day at the INEC office in Ilorin West Local Government.
He said the exercise will take place in all the 16 Local Government Councils starting from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. daily, except public holidays.
He, therefore, advised those who have registered during the last registration exercise and have not collected their PVCS to find time and collect same between now and one month to the 2019 presidential election.
