The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) yesterday  extended  the second phase distribution of permanent voters’ cards (PVC) exercise by two days in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

INEC’s Director of Public Affairs, Oluwole Osaze-Ussi, said the exercise would now end tomorrow as against Sunday (yesterday) earlier announced by the commission.

He explained  that the extension became necessary following heavy downpour in the FCT on Friday, the first day of the exercise and on other subsequent days

According to him, "many people could not come out on the first day (Friday) and the youth corps members could also not do much because of the rain, so it has been extended by two days and will now end on Tuesday in FCT."
INEC had announced that the distribution of PVCs would commence on Friday, August 15, and end on Sunday, 17th August in eleven states and the FCT.

The states are: Yobe and Bauchi, (North-east); Jigawa and Sokoto (North-west); FCT and Kwara (North-central); Anambra and Ebonyi (South-east); Ondo and Oyo (South-west); and Delta and Cross River (South-south).
The commission also said the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR), exercise would follow immediately in the 11 states, next week, from August 20 to 25.
