INEC extends issuance of PVCs in Kaduna State

10 December 2014, 20:26

Kaduna - The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Wednesday said the issuance of Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs) in Kaduna State would continue in areas the exercise was yet to start.

The  issuance of the cards, which began on Monday, was scheduled to end on Wednesday.

The commission had supplied only two million cards out of the 3.5 million to be issued to verified voters in the state.

It had said that the balance of 1.5 million cards would be supplied to it at a later date from Lagos.

Consequently, the issuance of the cards has not commenced in many polling units across the state.

The commission, in a statement signed by the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Haliru Tambawel, made available in Kaduna, stated that lapses emanated from it and would, therefore,“not penalise the general public through no fault of theirs”.

It stated that the exercise would not end on Wednesday in places it was yet to start.

It said “the commencement of the exercise in any local government area, wards and polling units affected will be the first day of the exercise in such areas”.

INEC also reminded prospective voters that the collection of the PVCs was a continuous exercise until a day to the 2015 general election.
