Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa of Ondo state has declared Thursday, 22nd and Friday, 23rd of February 2024 as public holidays in the state to honour the late Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.

The two work-free days, according to the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Ebenezer Adeniyan, in Akure, will allow the people of the State to participate in the burial activities of the former Governor.

Akeredolu, 67, passed away in a German hospital after a prolonged battle with leukaemia and prostate cancer. After his demise, Aiyedatiwa emerged as the governor.

Friday October 9th 2020

The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress and Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has declared Friday October 9th 2020 as a public holiday for workers in this Nigerian state.

The Governor announced the decision ahead of the October 10th governorship election in the state.

Akeredolu in a statement released through the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, said the work-free day was “approved as such to enable workers to have enough time to embark on adequate measures aimed at preparing themselves for the Election.”

This will allow workers to travel to where they are registered to cast their votes.

The statement reads in part: “Eligible voters are advised to be law-abiding throughout the period of the exercise.

“They are equally encouraged to take maximum advantage of the adequate security measures already put in place to exercise their voting rights without any fear of harassment, intimidation and molestation.

“Governor Akeredolu wishes all stakeholders, especially our workers in the Public Service, the best of luck as they exercise their civic responsibility.”
