Dear Nigerians, the moment you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has officially announced the date for Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC) collection.
When’s the collection?
INEC has given us exactly five weeks for PVC collection — from December 12, 2022 to January 22, 2023.
But Nigerians aren’t too pleased with the time period, as most feel the window is too short.
How’s it going to be collected?
Voters can collect their PVCs at registration centres between December 6, 2022 and January 15, 2023.
After January 15, you’d have no choice but to go to an INEC local government office to pick up your PVC until January 22. Take it from us, you don’t want to wait until that time because the queues will be crazy.
What time can citizens pick up their PVCs?
Citizens can pick up their PVCs between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. every day, including Saturdays and Sundays.
What happens if there’s an error?
Despite the review process of the controversial voter register being closed, INEC has got you covered. Electoral officers will be available to assist registrants with complaints during the PVC collection at help desks.
Drop the locations please
Starting from December 12, 2022 to January 15, 2023, you can collect your PVCs at any of these registration area centres nationwide.
From January 15 to January 22, all PVCs would then be collected at INEC local government offices here.
Remember to mark the dates in your calendars. Good luck!
