#PVCitizen: What’s your Excuse for not Registering?



The 2019 elections are now 188 days away, and INEC has said the registration process will end August 17, just 7 days away!

Time is running, fast!

It’s important that we ready ourselves for our future, and the only way to do this is by getting that small card called the Permanent Voters Card (PVC).

It really isn’t that difficult. There are INEC offices in all local government areas in the country.

Take just one day off work and arrive at your centre by 5:30 AM.

Maybe you’re looking at it like that’s too early. But it really isn’t. You can go to the one nearest to your house. Wake up 5 AM and take a quick shower. No need to make-up or anything, just throw that shirt and shorts on.

If you can’t take time off work, that’s perfectly fine; starting August 1, you can register on weekends!

Have a valid ID card with you and that’s really all.

If you’re not sure if you’ve registered in 2011 or 2015, no worries, you can check INEC’s database with only your date of birth and your name.

And if you registered in a state or local government different from where you currently stay, you can learn how to transfer your registration.

Also important is that you do not sell your votes. It’s too important a thing to sell. It’s priceless! It’s literally your future.

    This PVC thing is just a fraud. I stay in lifecamp Abuja, I moved there 2 years ago from another area in Abuja. I made the monumental mistake of requesting for a change of polling station, and there d nonsense started.
    I thought it was a matter of changing things by computer, instead, i was told to fill forms and wait in line for a
    brand new PVC. I was told they would send me a text to come and collect, story!
    After my fifth visit there 4 months later (I had been going every month)I was told by the rude and very indifferent inec official to ‘take it easy’, that I was not the only one. That in fact I should try and rest, as they had not even gotten round to those who applied this year 2018. Dat they were still doing those of last year 2017, so me dat applied in February 2018, should pls go and rest.
    Yet daily, this same Inec would be announcing that people do not want to come for their PVC bla bla that they have million billion uncollected pvcs in stock, very annoying

    I stay in lekki phase1 and the crowd at the registration center is crazy. I have taken excuse from work twice just for pvc registration only to end up not registering at all. One of the officials was telling me that I have to come as early as 4am to register. How do you want me to leave my house as early as that time just for something that would have been done hitch free if the planned it properly. Right now I have exhausted my excuse for being off from work anymore. I have just cocoma decided not to borther myself any more.

      See how many times PMB contested election to be president? See how long Atiku has been on the scene to ensure he becomes president. My brother don’t give up… i know it is easier said than done… if these old men- older than you are still fighting to get power why should you give up your own power to give them power or not… Do not say “i am but one person” because if we all say so what will happen? I finally got mine on Friday because i refused to give up ooo. My children are small let us see if they can have a better Nigeria than we did… we will try and maybe fail but try we must. All the best.
