Permanent Voters Cards (PVC).

The public holiday was announced on Tuesday,
February 3, by Israel Ebije , the Chief Press Secretary to
Governor Mu’azu Aliyu.
Ebije said that the state government had decided to
declare the holiday in a bid to ensure that nobody was
disenfranchised due to f failure to collect PVCs.
“Your PVCs are not just ordinary cards; they are a
veritable tool which you would use to elect your
preferred candidates in the coming elections and many
more elections to come. It is therefore instructive for
every eligible voter to collect voter card,” Ebije said in a
statement.
