The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress and Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has declared Friday as a public holiday for workers in the state.
The Governor announced the decision ahead of the October 10 governorship election in the state.
Akeredolu in a statement released through the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, said the work-free day was “approved as such to enable workers to have enough time to embark on adequate measures aimed at preparing themselves for the Election.”
This will allow workers to travel to where they are registered to cast their votes.
He also called on eligible voters to be law-abiding throughout the period of the exercise.
“They are equally encouraged to take maximum advantage of the adequate security measures already put in place to exercise their voting rights without any fear of harassment, intimidation and molestation.”
“Governor Akeredolu wishes all stakeholders, especially our workers in the Public Service, the best of luck as they exercise their civic responsibility.”
