The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Cross River State, says permanent voter’s cards are ready for collection.
INEC in a public announcement signed by the Administrative Secretary, Davis Obo, noted that voter’s cards for fresh registrants, who registered between June and December 2021 in Cross River State are ready for collection in its offices in the 18 Local Government Area of the State from Thursday, 28 April, 2022.
The electoral umpire said, “the time for collection is within the period of 9am to 3pm from Monday to Friday except for public holidays. The cards are to be collected personally by the owners, not by proxy. Those who registered between January 2022 and until the end of the voter registration exercise on June 30, 2022 will collect their cards when the Commission is ready. The date for collection will be announced nationwide.”
It further urged the public to take advantage of the opportunity to pick up their cards or register for those yet to do so or just attended the age of 18. INEC however, warned against double registration.
“Once more, we use this opportunity to call on qualified residents who have not registered before to avail themselves of the ongoing Continuous Voters Registration before the expiration of the exercise on June 30, 2022.
“Registrants are warned not to engage in double registration because voters cards of those who engage in double registration will not be printed.
“All stakeholders are enjoined to mobilize persons who registered within the stipulated period of January to December 2021 to collect their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs).”
