The Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu has approved that Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th January 2023 be declared as public holidays in the State to enable Abians and residents to collect their Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC), ahead the forthcoming general elections.
A release by the Secretary to the State Government, Barr.
