In a bid to preparing for 2019 General election, Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi, says the state government would declare work-free day for workers across the state to collect their Permanent Voter Cards in the last week of the registration exercise.
The governor disclosed this when the state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mutiu Agboke, paid him courtesy visit in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital.
The governor challenged INEC to step up the drive towards ensuring more residents of the state collect their PVCs, after a significant portion of the PVCs are still unclaimed.
Earlier, the REC had informed the governor that over seven hundred and fifty thousand PVCs were still unclaimed at their office.
