Declare ‘work-free-day’ for civil servants to enroll for PVC, Kwara SDP tells Abdulrazaq

The Kwara State Chapter of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), has charged Gov. Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq to declare a ‘work-free-day’ to allow the State’s civil servants to enroll for the Continuous Voter Registration exercise, saying such measure would also allow other public servants to replace either damaged or collect their PVC lying ‘waste’ in INEC custody.

The SDP through its State Chairman, Alh. Afolabi AbdulAzeez made this statement via a press release, emphasizing that the PVC is the only weapon needed by any patriotic citizen to perform their civic responsibility to the State.

He noted that Kwara being a civil service State, the civil servants are critical in the formulation and implementation of public policies and programmes, therefore, it would be a great disservice to the people of Kwara State should government disenfranchise such critical stakeholders by false pretense.

The release reads “With the continuous voter registration (CVR) winding up in 5 days time, precisely 31st of July, 2022, it is expedient that the Kwara State Governor, takes a cue from his counterparts across the Country, by declaring public holiday to enable civil and public servants at all levels take advantage of the remaining days to participate in the exercise.

“From the INEC records, the enrollment statistics of Kwara State is comparatively low and could be improved with as little incentive from the State government as declaring a ‘work-free-day’ for the workers.”

“In the same vein, I seize this opportunity to advise the teeming Youths of Kwara to take the destiny of our future now by taking advantage of this window of opportunity to enroll and collect their PVC.” He concluded.
