Report reaching us that, Okezie Ikpeazu, the governor of Abia State, has made Monday, January 23, and Tuesday, January 24, 2023, holidays in the state so that people can get their permanent voter’s cards (PVC) before the next general election.
This is said in a statement from Saturday that was signed by Chris Ezem, who is the Secretary to the State Government. Let’s read more details about the pvc collection below.
Abia State Pvc Collection
The governor told all government offices and markets to close, and he told people to take advantage of the time to pick up their PVCs from the Independent National Electoral Commission offices or collection centers where they registered.
“The heads of the different markets in the state have been told to make sure that their markets close exactly as planned or be ready to face the right punishments.
“This directive does not affect banks or people with important jobs,” the statement said.
Who Is the Governor of Abia State
Okezie Victor Ikpeazu is a Nigerian politician who has served as the Governor of Abia State since May 29, 2015.
He was born on October 18, 1964, and has been in office since May 29, 2015. His campaign ran on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party, and it was successful.
On December 31, 2015, a Court of Appeal in Owerri fired Ikpeazu as Governor and ruled that Alex Otti had won the 2015 gubernatorial election, which took place on April 11 and April 25, 2015.
Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court in Abuja told Ikpeazu on June 27, 2016, that he had to step down as governor because he had given false information and forged documents before the 2015 gubernatorial election.
A Federal High Court in Owerri, however, threw out the case. Okezie Ikpeazu ran for a second term as governor of Abia State under his party, PDP. He won the election and is now starting his second term as governor.
