State of Osun Govt; Why We Declare Monday as Public Holiday




State of Osun Govt has declared Monday April 16, a public holiday for workers and students in the state.

According to news gathered, we gather that the essence of the public holiday is to provide more than enough opportunity for eligible voters to participate in the ongoing Continuous Voters Registration (CVR) exercise by registering with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). 

So as well as to collect their Permanent Voter Card (PVC) for them to be able to perform their civic responsibility when election comes. 

Voter Registration and collection of permanent Voters card (PVC) are very important and strategic to electoral process and has capability of strengthening democratic governance. 

Voter registration helps to facilitate the credibility of the electoral process and democratic governance and that is why the government found it imperative to create ample opportunity by declaring Monday a work free day which is the last day for the eligible voters to register.

Thus, government passionately urge the people to go out and register in the remaining days, while those who have lost or defaced their cards can register afresh but should guard against registering twice as each person is only allowed to register once.
