…Promises To Declare Another Work-Free Day

The governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has lauded residents of the state, expressing satisfaction over the peaceful and huge turnout of residents across the state for the ongoing continuous voter registration, CVR.

Consequently, the governor therefore promised to declare another work-free day before the week runs out to provide opportunity for other residents, who are yet to register to do so before the end of the exercise.

Governor Abiodun said this while speaking during the monitoring of the registration exercise at Iregun and Imosan registration centres in Iperu-Remo, Ikenne Local Government Area, noting that the ongoing voter registration exercise would give the residents the opportunity to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards, to enable them elect credible candidates during the 2023 general elections.

The governor said, “I want to use this opportunity to ask all of you to go out and register, so that you can obtain your PVC. This is the only tool you need to elect credible people to run the affairs of this country. Please don’t wait till the last day. Do it now that you still have the opportunity. I may still declare another day so that those who could not register can do so.”

Enumerating the importance of the voter card as a tool for electing trusted people to run the affairs of the country, the governor urged those who are yet to register to do so before next Sunday.

Speaking earlier, the Electoral Officer in charge of Ikenne Local Government, Mr. Ahmed Ojikutu, said that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had put necessary logistics in place to ensure that every eligible resident is not denied registration.

He attributed the success of the exercise to the people who cooperated with INEC in making the exercise less stressful.

The Chairman, Ikenne Local Government Area, Segun Ogunleye, thanked the state governor for the work-free day, noting the step had allowed the residents to register in order not to be disenfranchised during next year’s elections.
