The Osun State Government has declared  Friday, June 24, a work-free day, to allow the civil servants in the state who are yet to obtain their  Permanent Voter Card(PVC)  to do so.



This was made public by a release on Thursday signed by the Secretary to the State government, Wole Oyebamiji.



The statement reads in part: ‘’The  Government of Osun State acknowledges the importance of workers in the democratic process, and is aware that the only way for workers can give life to their aspiration for a worker-friendly government is through their votes’’.




The 2022 Osun State gubernatorial election will hold on 16 July 2022, to elect the governor of Osun State.




The incumbent  All Progressives Congress (APC)  Governor Adegboyega Oyetola is eligible for reelection and has been nominated by his party.




The primaries, Scheduled for between  16 February and 12 March, resulted in Oyetola winning the APC nomination for a second time, albeit amid outcry from his primary challengers.



For the main opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) ,  longtime internal disputes led to two parallel primaries being held as a faction nominated former senatorial candidate Dotun  Babayemi while the faction recognized by the national  PDP nominated former Senator for Oun West, Ademola Adeleke, the party’s 2018 nominee.




As the Independent National  Electoral  Commission (INEC) only observed the primary that nominated Adeleke, he is listed as the PDP nominee.
