The Abia State Government has declared Monday and Tuesday public holidays in order for state residents to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).
Barrister Chris Ezem, the Secretary to the Abia State Government, announced this in a statement on Saturday.
“Consequently, all public offices and markets are to be closed as all are enjoined to use this opportunity to visit the INEC offices or collection centres where they registered to collect their PVCs ahead of the 29th January 2023 deadline by INEC for closure of PVC collection,” the statement read.
“The Executives of the various markets in the State are directed to ensure strict compliance on the closure of their various markets or be prepared to face appropriate sanctions.”
According to the SSG, the government’s instruction has no effect on banks or those performing critical jobs.
