INEC reveals when voters will get their PVC

The Independent National Electoral Commission says the distribution of
Permanent Voter Cards to their owners will begin by the middle of May.

The Ebonyi INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Professor Godswill
Obioma, disclosed this at a strategic security interactive meeting on
Wednesday in Abakaliki.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the strategic meeting involved
INEC officials, representatives of security outfits involved in the
conduct of the election as well as the National Orientation Agency,
and the National Youth Service Corps.

Obioma said that the commission would commence the distribution of the
PVCs to eligible electorate, who registered between 2017 and 2018.

He urged security officials, who were yet to register, to take
advantage of the ongoing Continuous Voter Registration to register.

He further urged members of the security agencies, who transferred
from other locations, wishing to transfer their cards to Ebonyi to
approach any INEC office nearest to them for the transfer.

He warned against double registration, noting that any double
registration would result in the cancellation and disqualification of
the voter.

"We have concluded arrangements for the distribution of the Permanent
Voter Cards to their owners and the exercise begins by mid-May and
will involve those who registered between 2017 and 2018.

"We have begun early to plan for the 2019 elections and I want to
assure you that we will do our best to eliminate factors that will
compromise outcome, credibility and integrity of the elections.

"Let me use the opportunity to urge officers who have not registered
to register and those wishing to do card transfer to visit any INEC
office for the update," Obioma said.
