Ondo LG polls: Akeredolu declares August 21 work-free day

  

Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has declared Friday, August 21, 2020, as a work-free day in the state.

The governor gave the directive on Thursday to enable residents of the State prepare for the local government election scheduled for August 22, 2020.

According to a statement issued by the Commissioner for Information, Donald Ojogo, Governor Akeredolu equally urged the electorate to freely exercise their voting rights just as he called on them to shun violence during the exercise.

“As we are all aware, the Local Government Election scheduled for Saturday, August 22, 2020, is yet another opportunity for the citizens of Ondo State to avail themselves of the chance of democratic participation.

“This is particularly imperative in view of the importance of that tier of government as the closest to the grassroots. We cannot, therefore, afford to take less advantage of this golden opportunity not only to deepen our democratic structures but to equally decide our leadership contents for optimum development drive.

“In this regard, Mr. Governor has directed that Friday, August 22, be declared a work-free for workers to enable them prepare adequately for the local government election.

“Governor Akeredolu, while urging all citizens of the state to take maximum advantage of the election to freely exercise their rights, enjoins all to shun violence before, during and after the exercise.”
