OYSIEC Fixes May 12 For Local Government Election

The Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission (OYSIEC) has fixed Saturday, May 12, 2018, as the new date for elections into Local Governments and Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) in the State.

The Chairman of the Commission, Mr Jide Ajeigbe who disclosed this on Friday, February 2, 2018, at a press briefing in Ibadan said newly registered Political Parties will be accommodated.

The elections will be conducted in the 33 Local Government areas and 35 LCDA’s

It would be recalled that the election had been fixed for February 11, 2017, before it was suspended following a lawsuit by some community heads.

The suit was withdrawn in December 2017.
