….guidelines to be provided for PVC collection.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced nationwide continuous voter registration to kick off on June 28.

This was made known to the public by INEC Deputy Director, Voter Education Division, Mary Nkem, at a road-show on the CVR organised by the commission in Abuja.

Ms Nkem explained, “It is also to let FCT residents know those who are being targeted in the exercise, those who have turned 18 after the last registration exercise or those who are more than 18 years but have never registered.

“This exercise is also for those who have issues with their accreditation during the past elections, those who have issues with their Permanent Voter Cards or their biometric details.”

She further stated that the exercise would hold from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday to Friday, excluding weekends.

“It will involve two processes, that is, online pre-registration and physical registration. So, people can sit in the comfort of their homes and login details for registration.

“Then go to any of our local government or state office to capture their biometrics and photographs, or you appear physically at any designated register,” she said.

The INEC official noted that the electoral body would provide the guidelines for PVC collection.
