Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, on Thursday, declared Friday, October 9, 2020, as work-free for workers in the State Public Service.
The development is for the governorship election scheduled for Saturday, October 10, 2020.
In a statement issued and signed by the state Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr Donald Ojogo, said the day was approved to allow workers in the state to have enough time to embark on adequate measures aimed at preparing themselves for the Election.
He said “this includes necessary trips by workers to areas where they are registered to cast their votes.
“Eligible voters are advised 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.
“Akeredolu wishes all stakeholders, especially our workers in the Public Service, the best of luck as they exercise their civic responsibility.”
