The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) would on Monday start distributing Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) to newly registered eligible voters in Lagos State, its spokesman, Femi Akinbiyi, has said.

He told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that INEC had concluded arrangements for the distribution of PVC in the 20 local government areas of the state.

“Definitely on Monday, we are going to start the distribution of PVCs at the INEC offices in the 20 local government areas of the state.

“The available cards now are only for those who registered in 2017 and that is from the inception of the exercise in April 2017 to December 2017.

“We are still expecting more cards; other cards will be made available later, especially for those who registered in the first quarter of 2018 and those currently registering,” Akinbiyi said.

He said that the Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Mr Sam Olumekun, had on Thursday met with local INEC officials on the modality for distribution of the PVCs in their respective council areas.

At the meeting, Olumekun had urged the INEC officials to treat the people with love and courtesy, Akinbiyi said.

The INEC spokesman enjoined the new registrants to visit INEC offices in their council areas to claim their cards.

He said that INEC office in the state would monitor the distribution exercise across the councils, saying that ongoing Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise would continue across the designated centres.

The ongoing Continuous Voters Registration exercise started nationwide on April 27, 2017. (NAN)
