The INEC official told the traditional ruler that the cards were spread across the 25 Local Government Areas of the state.
He appealed to traditional and religious leaders to mobilise the affected people to visit the headquarters of their local governments to collect their PVCs adding, however, that no card would be given by proxy.
He said that the visit was to pay homage and seek royal blessings and prayers ahead of the 2023 general election, and promised to conduct credible elections that would be acceptable to all.
Responding, the royal father expressed gratitude for the visit, describing it as timely and symbolic.
He advised INEC to decentralize the collection of the PVCs to the polling units level to ease access.
