Nigeria: New poll reveals low rate of PVC collection

A new public opinion poll conducted by NOIPolls has revealed that almost 7 in 10 Nigerians (68 percent) who registered since the commencement of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise in April, 2017 are yet to collect their permanent voter’s card (PVC). Most people who are yet to collect their PVCs reported that they have checked but were told by INEC officials that their PVCs were not yet ready for collection. However, INEC’s Director of Publicity and Voter Education, Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, disclosed in Abuja on May 11th 2018, that PVCs for citizens who registered between April and December 2017 have been ready for collection since May 21st, 2018.[1]
