Abuja - The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has further extended the deadline for collection of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) until March 8, 2015.

This is contained in a statement signed by the Secretary to the Commission, Augusta Ogakwu in Abuja on Monday.

The statement quoted Ogakwu as saying the four weeks extension of the deadline followed the rescheduling of the 2015 general elections.

She stated that “the collection of the cards will continue for four more weeks until March 8, 2015.“
