KOGI DECLARES FRIDAY 11TH DECEMBER, 2020 AS PUBLIC HOLIDAY TO ENABLE WORKERS TRAVEL FOR COUNCIL POLL
The Kogi State Government has declared Friday 11th December, 2020 as work-free day to enable Civil Servants travel to their towns and villages for the December 12, 2020 Local Government election in the State.
The directive was given to enable civil servants exercise their right to vote and participate in the political determination of how their Local Government Areas are governed.
This is a further confirmation of the commitment of the Governor Yahaya Bello’s administration to deepening democratic practice and tenets.
The State Government has already charged the State Independent Electoral Commission to ensure free, fair and credible poll. Security agencies have also been urged to ensure strict adherence to constitutionalism, before, during and after the election.
To us as a Government, franchise is a festival of freedom. Let us all come out enmasse to determine those who will govern our grassroots Government for the next three years.
