“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.

“Consequently, Friday, June 24, has been declared a work-free day in all government offices across the state to enable all public and civil servants to pick their PVC so they can perform their civic duty”, the statement said.

The governorship election in Osun State is slated for Saturday, July 16, 2022.
