Kwara declares work-free day over PVCs collection

As part of the move to ensure that people get their permanent voter cards (PVCs), Kwara State Government has declared today as work-free day.

Head of Service Mrs. Susan Oluwole said in a statement that Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq approved the work-free day for the civil servants.

The statement said the approval was aimed at giving an ample time to the workers to get their PVCs from the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC), to enable them participate in the upcoming general election.

“Those yet to get their voter cards are advised to immediately do so before the expiration of the collection date,” the statement said.

Kwara State House of Assembly has approved N188.8million as 2023 appropriation law.

The passage followed the report of the House Committee on Finance and Appropriation presented by the Chairman and member representing Owode-Onire Constituency, Ambali Ibrahim.

Capital expenditure is now N113.1 billion, as opposed to N12.5 billion earlier presented by the executive, representing an increase of N109 million, while the recurrent expenditure stands at N77.6 billion, as against N76.4 billion earlier proposed, representing a decrease of N1.6 billion.

Speaker Yakubu Danladi-Salihu said the capital expenditure is N50.2 per cent of the total budget estimate, while recurrent expenditure stands at 48 3 per cent.
