The All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on its party members and party supporters in Nigeria and abroad to take advantage of the ongoing Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) online Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise to register and complete the process at designated INEC centres from where they can collect their Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC).
This was announced in a statement issued on Sunday by Senator John Akpanudoedehe, the National Secretary of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee.
Akpanudoedehe advised APC members across Nigeria to get their voters’ cards, as it will enable them vote in the several forthcoming by-elections and other staggered elections culminating in the general election of 2023.
“We want to remind our members that the PVC is the only legal instrument voters need to elect leaders who can sustain the national ongoing efforts of the APC governments at the federal, state and local government areas to sustain its successes in renewing national infrastructure, transforming agriculture and diversifying the economy.
“New voters can pre-register on the INEC portal, while those who have registered in the past can access the platform to review their voter registration status,” he said.
The National Secretary said already registered voters can update their personal information or transfer their voter registration to another polling unit.
He stressed that newly registered voters are only required to fill and upload their forms on the portal after filling in personal information and required documents. After that, they are also expected to visit an INEC state or local government office to provide their fingerprints before the 19th of July to complete the registration and get their PVCs.
“We call on the over 40 million registered members of the APC to register and voters en masse to ensure that the party continues to be the leading and winning party which has superior policies and orientation to implement projects and programmes aimed at improving the wellbeing of all Nigerians,” he noted.
