Peter Obi beckons on INEC to extend PVC registration deadline



As the deadline for registration of new Permanent Voter Cards draws close, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party has beckoned on the Independent National Electoral Commission to extend the voter registration exercise throughout the nation.

INEC had earlier extended the deadline for  online registration for new PVCs from May 31, 2022, to June 30, 2022, this deadline for all registrations on June 30 has been maintained by the body.

Peter Obi called on INEC to facilitate a speedy registration of voters for them to be able to exercise their constitutional rights.

“Information reaching me indicate that voter registration across Nigeria, more so in the South East, is dogged by inertia & bureaucratic bottlenecks. I respectfully call on [INEC] to facilitate speedy registration of Nigerians to enable them exercise their voting rights,” Obi wrote.

As the 2023 general elections draw close, many Nigerians have lamented the difficulty in getting their PVCs within the timeframe provided by INEC.
