The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) said the distribution of unclaimed Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) was ongoing in the territory.
Director, Voter Education of the commission, Mrs Ndidi Okafor, made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in an interview on Thursday in Abuja.
Okafor said that the distribution of the PVCs was being carried out by the commission’s officials in the six area councils in the area.
The councils are Abuja Municipal, Kuje, Gwagwalada, Abaji, Bwari.
In Abuja, the director said that registered voters in eight wards out of the 12 wards in the area were collecting the cards at INEC headquarters in the territory.
The wards, according to her, include Garki, Kabusa, Wuse, Gwarinpa, Jiwa and Gwagwa.
She added that the remaining four wards of Nyanya, Orozo, Karshi and Karu had collection centres in them.
According to Okafor, the new arrangement is to take the collection centre closer to the people.
She explained that most people found it difficult to go to Karu office to collect their cards, hence the new arrangement.
She urged all registered voters in the area who had not collected the card to go to the appropriate places to do so.
On Voter registration, Okafor said that FCT office was yet to get a directive from INEC national headquarters on the issue, assuring that whenever the order was given, the office would comply. (NAN)
