The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says the distribution of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to their owners will begin by middle of May.
The Ebonyi INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Prof. Godswill Obioma disclosed at a strategic security interactive meeting on Wednesday in Abakaliki.
Obioma said that the commission would commence the distribution of the PVCs to eligible electorate, who registered between 2017 and 2018.
“We have concluded arrangements for the distribution of the Permanent Voter Cards to their owners and the exercise begins by mid May and will involve those who registered between 2017 and 2018.
“We have begun early to plan for the 2019 elections and I want to assure you that we will do our best to eliminate factors that will compromise outcome, credibility and integrity of the elections.
“Let me use the opportunity to urge officers who have not registered to register and those wishing to do card transfer to visit any INEC office for the update,” Obioma said.
