Bauchi State Governor, Sen. Bala A. Mohammed has declared Monday as a state-wide holiday.
The holiday is to enable citizens of the state who have attained the age of 18 years after the 2019 general elections or lost their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) or even changed their locations to take advantage of the ongoing INEC Continuous Voters Registration (CVR) Exercise and obtain their PVCs.
Bala Mohammed equally expressed serious concern about the low turn-out of eligible Voters and therefore directed all Commissioners, Special Advisers, Senior Special Assistants, Board Chairmen, Directors-General, Executive Secretaries, Permanent Secretaries, and other public office holders, to proceed to their respective electoral wards to mobilize eligible registrants to come out en-mass and get registered.
Residents of the state are hereby advised to ensure that they got registered to be able to participate in the 2023 General elections as contained in a statement by Mukhtar Gidado, Special Adviser Media and Publicity to the Governor.
