He said the holiday is to enable eligible voters in the state collect their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) at the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) designated centres in their respective Local Government Areas.
“The importance of the forthcoming elections cannot be overemphasised. There is an urgent need for us to address the low rate of PVCs collection in the Southwest.
