The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has outlined plans to tackle incidents of loss of the Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC) or even difficulty in locating collection centres and has decided to engage the services of the All New 7411 National Directory Service.

The INEC’s director of Voters Education and Publicity, Barrister Oluwole Uzzi,  said in a chat with the media that sourcing such information from the Commission through the directory via telephone calls will cost N12/minute as approved by NCC, which it noted is not more than the normal call rate in the country, “making it affordable to all to call at no extra charges to the caller.”
