The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Bauchi State, has sternly warned voters against multiple registration for Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) ahead of the 2023 general elections.
This is contained in a statement issued by Adamu Gujungu, the head of voter education and publicity, INEC Bauchi, on Wednesday.
“If you have an issue with your PVC or your card is lost, defaced or damaged you should state the same to the registration officers for it to be sorted out.
“Double or multiple registrants risk the tendency of having their registration cancelled,” he said.
Mr Gujungu said that the commission had begun the distribution of PVCs to those who had completed their registration.
He said that the distribution is for those who registered in the first quarter of the CVR exercise (from June 28, 2021 and the second quarter which ended December 20, 2021).
