The Osun State Government has declared Thursday “work free” day for civil servants to participate in the supplementary governorship election.
Sola Fasure, media aide to Governor Rauf Aregbesola, announced this in a statement issued to journalists in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.
Fasure said the declaration is to allow the work force join other residents to exercise their franchise in the affected seven polling units where the election will hold.
The statement read: “The State Government of Osun has declared Thursday, September 27, 2018 a public holiday throughout the state.
“This is to enable workers to participate in the rerun governorship election taking place in seven units in Ife-North, Ife-South, Orolu and Osogbo Local Government Areas of the State.”
Thursday election would be a horse race between Ademola Adeleke, the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
