Zamfara State Government has declared Friday, 31st August, as work free day to enable eligible voters obtain their Permanent Voter Cards, PVCs.
The government has also announced reduction in work hours for its workers from 4pm to 12noon on Wednesday and Thursday.
The deputy governor, Ibrahim Wakkala who made the announcement yesterday in Gusau, explained that the decision was to encourage those that were yet to obtain their PVC to do so before the deadline.
Wakkala spoke during a stakeholders meeting on the deadline for the ongoing continuous voter registration.
“As good citizens, for us to exercise our civic rights, we must get the PVCs. This would enable us to elect leaders of our choice in the forthcoming 2019 general elections and beyond.
“Therefore it becomes a compulsory duty for us to participate effectively in this exercise,” Wakkala said.
