The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it might extend Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) collection deadline in some states.
This, it said, is as a result of uncollected PVCs and complaints received. The commission said it does not want anyone disenfranchised.
The commission said it will meet to review this and decide on what action to take.
The initial deadline for the collection of PVCs was Friday, February 8.
However, the INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, at the National Stakeholders’ Forum on the 2019 general elections on Thursday, said the commission would meet with Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) from the 36 States and the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
“We have a lot of complaints from citizens. However, the complaints are coming from those who have damaged their PVCs and require replacement as well as those who applied for transfer and relocation, but the cards have not been found."
