        Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state has declared a three-day public holiday to enable more citizens to complete their voter registration. This was contained in a statement issued and signed by the media aide to Governor, Muyiwa Adekeye, on Tuesday, July 26.

        According to Adekeye, the holiday is from July 27 to 29th, Channels TV reports.

        He said the move is necessary so that more Kaduna electorates will be able to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards and participate in the 2023 general elections.

        While urging all eligible residents of the state to seize this window to register to vote and to therefore be in a position to exercise their right to vote, Adekeye disclosed that the government requests all employers to actively support their staff to register before INEC closes voter registration on July 31. Governor Nasir El-Rufai also confirmed this development through a post shared on his Facebook page, on Tuesday.

        The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has extended the continuous voter registration by two weeks. During an extraordinary session on Friday, July 15, the commission said the registration will end by Sunday, July 31, The Cable reports.
