Osun State Government has declared tomorrow (Friday), as work-free day to enable civil servants who are yet to collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) to do so ahead of the July 16 gubernatorial election in the state.

In a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Prince Wole Oyebamiji and made available to our Correspondent in Osogbo, Osun Government harped on the importance of the PVC and performance of their civic responsibility.

The statement read in part: “The Government of Osun State acknowledges the importance of workers in 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.

“The government does not want anyone to miss out on the opportunity to exercise their constitutional right, especially as it affects their overall wellbeing and the security of their future.

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