The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Kwara has taken delivery of 65,974 new Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).
Mr Paul Atser, INEC Administrative Secretary in Kwara, who made this known in Ilorin on Monday while receiving the new PVCs, said the cards were for those that registered in 2017.
He said the PVCs to be distributed did not include transfers, unprinted PVCs and reported cases of missing and defaced card reprint.
“Registrants in these categories need not go to the collection centres yet, they will be adequately informed when their own cards are ready,” Atser said.
He also warned those in these categories not to be tempted to register again as this would amount to double registration and an offence.
Atser, however, called on those who registered in 2017 to visit the registration centres across the 16 local government areas to collect their cards.
He added that all registered voters wishing to collect their PVCs should go to the registration centres themselves as there would not be collection by proxy.
Atser also advised them to go with their Temporary Voter Cards (TVCs) to make the search for their PVCs easy.
The ongoing Continuous Voters Registration exercise started nationwide on April 27, 2017.
