Osun 2022: Oyetola declares work-free day for collection of PVC

NEWS DIGEST – The governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola has announced tomorrow a work-free day for residents in the state.

The governor made the declaration on Thursday through the Secretary to the State Government, Prince Wole Oyebamiji, to encourage civil servants in the state who are yet to collect their Permanent Voter Cards to do so.

Oyebamiji noted the significance of the PVC to the enactment of their civic responsibility.

The statement read in part, “The Government of Osun State acknowledges the importance of workers in the democratic process, and is aware that the only way workers can give life to their aspiration for a worker-friendly government is through their votes.

In the statement released, the Osun state government disclosed it did not want residents of the state to miss out on the opportunity of exercising their constitutional right of participating in the July 16 governorship poll.

“Consequently, Friday, June 24, has been declared a work-free day in all government offices across the state, to enable all public and civil servants to pick their PVC so they can perform their civic duty.”
