Abuja-  The Inter-Party Advisory Council of Nigeria (IPAC) said it would embark on a nationwide road-show to urge registered voters to collect their Permanent Voter’s Card before the general elections in February.

This is contained in a statement signed by Chief Godson Okoye, National Publicity Secretary of IPAC, an umbrella body of all registered political parties in Nigeria, on Wednesday in Abuja.

He said that the show would commence at the Garki II Model Market in the Federal Capital Territory, and urged all political parties to participate in the exercise, which was part of efforts at strengthening democracy in the country.

He advised registered voters who had not collected the permanent voter’s card to go to INEC office in their respective local government area to collect the card.

Describing the upcoming elections, especially the presidential polls, as “defining moment for the country”, Okoye urged political parties to abide by electoral regulations.
