LG Elections: Enugu govt declares Wednesday work-free day, restricts movement

The Enugu State Government has declared Wednesday, February 23, as a work free day as residents of the State go for local government elections.

It also announced that markets and offices would be closed, just as movement of persons and vehicles would be restricted from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., except for those on essential duties.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Information, Steve Oruruo.

It reads, “The Enugu State Government (ENSG) wishes to notify the public that Local Government elections will hold on Wednesday, February 23, 2022, across the State.

Consequently, the Government has declared a statewide work free day on Wednesday, February 23, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to allow the people exercise their constitutional suffrage.

During this period, markets and offices shall be closed and movement of persons and vehicles restricted, except for those on essential duties.

All residents legally qualified to vote are therefore encouraged to go to the polls and cast their ballots.

The State Government, in its unflinching commitment to safeguarding and strengthening our democracy, has made requisite arrangements to guarantee a hitch-free process.”
