“INEC hereby calls on duly registered persons not to delay in going to collect their cards before the expiration of the new deadline,” the statement reads.

“The Commission reaffirms its determination to make the 2015 elections free, fair, credible and peaceful; and urges all stakeholders, including voters, to spare no effort in working towards the same objective,” it added.

Idowu also added that the extension would enable all registered voters collect their PVCs so that they could cast their votes in the polls.

The General Elections will commence on February 14 with the Presidential run-off.
