The registration usually takes little or no time from start to finish but might be hectic if there are many people with few INEC personnel. One important thing you put on when going to register for your PVC is clothing. Many are usually torn between their various clothes and don’t know which is appropriate for such an occasion.  Some vital points you must take into consideration are region, weather, and comfort. 


There are different appropriate clothing for different regions in Nigeria. In the Northern part of Nigeria, you are expected not to expose some parts of your body while the Southern part is more lenient towards clothing.


In Nigeria, we are gradually entering the rainy season. Therefore, on some days, the weather is hot and intense while on other days, the weather is cold and cool. The weather has a huge part to play in your choice of clothing.


It is advisable to wear comfortable and convenient clothing. Some centres are usually packed with many people, therefore, you might not even be seated. Avoid wearing high heels,  heavy make-up, fabrics that cause you to sweat profusely, very chunky boots, etc.
