INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu told the media at the National Collation Centre in Abuja on Thursday that although the commission is pleased that the rate of collection is higher than in previous years, there are still many PVCs uncollected.

INEC had initially fixed 12 December to 22 January for the PVC collection exercise in all Local Government Areass.

But the commission had to extend the deadline till 29 January, and again to 5 February.

According to INEC data, out of 93,469,008 registered voters in Nigeria, 93.3 percent have collected their PVCs.
