El-Rufai made the statement when traders of the popular Kaduna textile market, Kasuwan Barci, paid him a visit at the government house in Kaduna to back his second term bid.
The governor urged the traders to help in sensitising their members and the general public to approach INEC to collect their cards.
El-Rufai cautioned electorates against surrendering their PVC or its details to people going round, saying the motive of the opposition party was to clone and invalidate their PVCs.
