The Ondo State Government has declared Tuesday, 24th of January, 2023, a work free day for its civil servants to collect their Permanent Voter Cards.
This was disclosed by the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.SAN, through a press statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, on Saturday.
“The importance of the forthcoming elections can not be overemphasised . There is an urgent need for us to address the low rate of PVCs collection in the Southwest. Beyond partisan lines, it is imperative that our people understand that the PVC is their license to enthrone desired political leadership.
“We are constrained to take this decision to enable our people take this advantage and collect their PVCs. It’s important that we all exercise our civic responsibilities.
“All political appointees and other government functionaries are also directed to return to their local governments and wards to encourage our people to collect their PVCs.” the statement added.
