Three weeks to the gubernatorial election in Osun, the state government has declared Friday, June 24, a work-free day to enable civil servants and residents of the state, who are yet to collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) to do so.

According to the statement, “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.

“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, ” the statement read.
