Barely a month and half to the flag off of the series in Nigeria’s 2023 General Elections, an estimated 32,684 registered voters in Lagos State, South-West Nigeria, collected their permanent voter cards (PVCs) on Friday.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) gave out the figure in its daily update on PVCs collection issued on Saturday in Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Of the 32,684 PVCs collected January 6, 2023, in Lagos, 17,398 were by registered male voters, while 15,286 were by female folks.

It would be recalled that INEC recently said that about 1.6 million PVCs were still uncollected in Lagos, urging the owners of the PVCs to come forward and collect them.

In the Saturday daily update, INEC also revealed that on Friday, Edo State, South-South Nigeria, recorded 13,703 registered voters collecting their PVCs.

INEC had devolved the PVC collection exercise nationwide to registration area/ward level from Friday, January 6 to Sunday, January 15, 2023, after which it will be reverted to its local government offices until Sunday, January 22, 2023.

According to INEC’s timetable, the collection of PVCs will end on January 22, 2023.

INEC, it would be recalled, had announced December 12, 2022, as commencement date for collection of PVCs.
