The All Progressives Congress (APC) says all states under its control will declare two days of public holiday before the February 14, 2015 presidential election so that members of the public who have not collected their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) will be able to do so.

The decision was announced at the ongoing presidential campaign rally of the party at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, lagos.

Although no specific dates were mentioned, APC said the two days chosen would be revealed “before the February 14 presidential election”.

The subject of inadequate time for PVC collection has been recurring in conversations ahead of the election, and Sambo Dasuki, the national security adviser, last week cited it as enough reason why the election should be postponed.

But Attahiru Jega, chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) dismissed the call for postponement, expressing certainty that the commission would overcome its challenges before the election.

Before Dasuki’s call, INEC mulled the idea of “fresh registration for eligible persons who have not registered and those having issues with their PVCs”.
