PVC Collection is Authorised by INEC for Four Weeks.



The electoral umpire declared that registered voters will be allowed to obtain their cards throughout the specified time frame if they were unable to pick up their PVCs prior to the exercise’s suspension on February 5, 2023, before the most recent general elections.

INEC National Commissioner Sam Olumekun stated in a statement on Tuesday that the Commission has set aside weekdays (Monday through Friday) from 9.00 am to 3.00 pm for the collection of PVCs for a period of four weeks, from September 11 to October 9, 2023.

“All of our Local Government area offices in the three states—Bayelsa with eight, Imo with 27, and Kogi with 21—will have the PVCs accessible for pickup.

Furthermore, the Commission established other designated locations that house a significant amount of uncollected PVCs.

The Resident Electoral Commissioners (REC) in each of the three states will provide information on each centre.

Two RECs were also transferred by the Commission to different states. Obo Effanga, the REC for Edo State, assumes leadership in Bayelsa for the upcoming off-cycle governorship election, while Ayobami Salami relocates from Ekiti State to Lagos.

Following the resignation of the previous office holders, “the two States are among those without RECs,” according to INEC.

In the course of their continuing campaigns, political parties and candidates were advised by the electoral umpire to behave in a peaceful manner and to refrain from saying or doing anything that may incite a breach of peace.
