However, with the state yet to achieve up to 60 percent success in the collection of Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs), the government has decided to cancel the exercise to enable the people of the state to collect their PVCs from the various INEC offices.

The general elections start 14 February, with the presidential election.
