The Lagos State Government has announced a four-day work-free day for public servants so that they can obtain their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) from their respective local government/local council areas ahead of the general elections.

The development was made known by the Head of Service, Hakeem Muri-Okunola, via a circular released on Wednesday.

According to the information, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu graciously approved the work-free day for the public servants in the state.

Muri-Okunola stated that the work-free day would begin on Tuesday, January 24, and end on Friday, January 27, 2023, for different grade levels of workers in the public service.

“To this end, Mr Governor has graciously approved a work-free day to enable public servants to collect their PVCs from their respective local government/local council development areas as presented in the table below.”

The dates include Tuesday, January 24, 2023, for grade levels 01, 03, 07 and 15; Wednesday, January 25, 2023, for grade levels 02, 04, 08 and 13; Thursday, January 26, 2023, for grade levels 05, 09, 12, and 17; and Friday, January 27, 2023, for grade levels 06, 10, 14 and 16.
