House Of Reps Ask INEC To Extend PVC Registration By 8 Weeks

Following a motion moved by Benjamin Kalu from Abia State, on Wednesday, the House of Representatives has directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to extend permanent voters card registration by two months.

In his motion, Kalu noted that Nigerians still want to register for their PVCs. Due to the surge, the electoral umpire should extend the time for registration.

Consequently, the House mandated the Committee on Electoral Matters to engage INEC and report back in 2weeks.

It mandated the Committee to examine and proffer solutions to the shortage of registration machines and manpower and deploy an additional 30 voter registration machines in each local government area, train and deploy ad-hoc staff to improve the shortage of manpower at registration centres, provide security for the Ad-hoc staff.
