Ogun State Government Declares Two-Day Public Holiday for the Collection of PVCs Before Deadline

Ahead of the 2023 general elections, Nigerian electorates across the states of the federation who have yet to collect their PVCs have been advised to do so at their point of registration before the deadline which has been fixed at January 29.

The Ogun State Government has declared Tuesday, January 24, and Wednesday, 25, as work-free days for workers in the state public service and residents of the state to collect their PVCs to be able to exercise their franchise in the forthcoming general election on February 25.

The two-day public holiday was made known in a statement issued on Sunday in Abeokuta by Kunle Somorin, the Chief Press Secretary to the state Governor, Dapo Abiodun.

The statement reads in part: “Following the extension of the permanent voter cards collection till Sunday, January 29, 2023, by the Independent National Electoral Commission, Governor Abiodun has graciously approved two days – January 24 and 25, 2023, as work-free days to enable public servants to collect their PVCs from their respective local governments.”

“The governor enjoined all executive members of public markets and private establishments in the state to allow flexibility in their schedules for residents to use the opportunity to visit INEC offices or collection centres where they registered to collect their PVCs” Mr Somorin also stated in the statement.

The governor Dapo Abiodun was reported to have said voting is a civic responsibility, hence all eligible citizens must be allowed to exercise their rights to choose who governs them.
