The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is ready to disburse over 145,000 Permanent Voter Cards in Oyo state.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner in Oyo Mutiu Agboke confirmed this.
Rosemary Adeniyi, the spokeswoman for INEC in Oyo quoted Mr Agboke making the declaration on Monday in Ibadan.
Mr Agboke said the PVCs were for potential voters registered at the first and second quarters of the Continuous Voter Registration between June 28 and December 2021.
He urged people who registered during the period to visit the commission’s offices across the 33 local government areas of the state for collection.
The REC called on all eligible Nigerians that recently turned 18 years and above who had not registered before now to do so.
He advised those interested in using the last quarter of the exercise to register online and visit INEC designated registration centres to complete the registration.
However, the INEC official warned against double registration, noting that anyone caught would be prosecuted.
He also urged people whose PVCs were among the 726,615 uncollected previously to visit the nearest INEC office for collection.
