The Edo State Government has declared September 27 and September 28 as public holidays for the conduct of the governorship election in the state.

The rescheduled Edo State governorship election will hold on Wednesday, September 28.

Governor Adams Oshiomhole announced this on Saturday evening at an event organised in his honour by the state chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress in Benin.

The governor explained that the holidays was aimed at providing all eligible voters with the opportunity to relocate to their respective areas of registration.

He said that the work-free days would also allow the voters to exercise their constitutional rights.

Earlier, the leadership NLC commended the Oshiomhole administration, which it said could not be matched by previous administrations.

It also said that it would not want the state to return to what it described as “the years of the holocaust,” adding that the NLC would mobilise its members in support of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Godwin Obaseki.

The state Chairman of the union, Emmanuel Ademokun, listed some of the achievements of the incumbent governor to include the appointment of two permanent secretaries from the organised labour and increment of the minimum wage from N18,000 to N25,000.

According to him, others are prompt payment of workers’ salaries, interventions in the the payment of local government workers, employment of 900 Information Communications Technology staff into the civil service and the building of a twin Labour House.

Ademokun said, “A comparative analysis of this government with others that existed since 1991, when Edo State was created, reveals that the entire past(administrations) could not achieve one-third of what the government of Oshiomhole has achieved since 2008.”
