Tinubu had made the claim while addressing women leaders of the APC who paid him a visit in Abuja, on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.

Following his comment, the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) on Wednesday, January 19, 2022, countered the claim by the formal governor of Lagos, saying previously registered PVCs remain valid.

The Chief Technical Adviser to the Chairman of INEC, Prof Bolade Eyinla said Tinubu’s claim could “push eligible voters to register more than once thereby creating the problem of double and multiple registrations.”

Retracting his claim, Tinubu in a statement signed by Tunde Rahman from his media office admitted his claim on PVC was incorrect.

The presidential aspirant said while he was addressing the women, he mistakenly used the word ‘expire’ instead of stating that the cards may have to be updated.

He, however, apologised for the incorrect statement saying he felt sorry for any confusion it may have caused.
