The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it would soon begin the distribution of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) across the country, Newsflash247 reports.

Newsflash247 reports that the Acting Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Ekiti State, Dr. Muslim Omoleke, made the disclosure while addressing newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital.

The REC spoke after receiving an “Award of Excellence” from Students Representatives Council (SRC) of the International Institute of Journalists (IIJ) Abuja, Ado-Ekiti campus.

Omoleke said the decision to continue both exercise was agreed upon during a post-election retreat held by the commission in Lagos penultimate week.

His words: “The commission has concluded plans to resume the distribution of Permanent Voter’s Card(PVCs) and also the continuous Voters Registration in order to capture more eligible Nigerians.

“It is our firm believe that every qualified Nigerians is allowed to participate in the electoral process and going by what we discussed at our last retreat, these exercise will commence very soon across the country.

“We will always urge our people to embrace this coming window to enrol in the continuous voters registration for them to vote. We are already planning for the 2022 general elections.


“Some days to the Presidential and National Assembly elections, we suspended the distribution of PVCs, but very soon the exercise will begin again in the country.”
