LG Election: Lagos Govt. Announces Restriction Of Movement by sonsomegrigbo: 8:44pm On Jul 16
The Lagos State Government has announced restriction of vehicular movement on Saturday July 22, in view of the local government elections that will hold in the state.
The elections will hold across the 20 Local Government and 37 Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) across the state.
Mr. Steve Ayorinde, the state’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, in a statement on Sunday, said that the restriction of movement would be enforced between 8a.m and 2pm.
He said the step was to allow for a smooth conduct of the polls and unhindered participation.
Ayorinde urged residents to be peaceful and orderly on Saturday as they cast their votes in their respective wards for chairmen and councilors who were expected to drive development at the third tier of government.
He said that the election would bring on board a new set of public officers for the next four years at the local government level.
According to him, the restriction will allow the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) and the security agencies to distribute electoral materials in good time and ensure the sanctity of free and fair electoral process.
“The police and other security agencies are ready to ensure that the electioneering campaign and the voting on Saturday are conducted smoothly without public disturbance.
“Every political party, candidates and their supporters, and the general public are hereby assured of safety throughout the period of voting and collation.
“However, the government solicits the cooperation of voters and the general public by obeying the restriction order and the general electoral rules in order to ensure a peaceful conduct before, during and after the elections,” Ayorinde said.
LASIEC had last week announced that 12 parties would participate in the July 22 election.
It listed the parties as: All Progressives Congress (APC), Action Alliance (AA), Alliance for Democracy (AD), Labour Party (LP), All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Accord Party, Kowa Party, National Action Council (NAC), People’s Democratic Movement (PDM), United Democratic Party (UDP) and United Progressive Party (UPP).
The electoral body had also displayed the list of validated candidates for the election at its headquarters.

Go out and vote please


obonujoker:


Vote for whom??

We can choose to be dissatisfied with our government and leaders and do nothing or do something no matter how insignificant. Voting is NOT insignificant however.

In the 2015 elections one was asked to vote certain people, one undertook research and fact finding and ONLY voted those who one was convinced had the VISION, CONVICTION and CAPACITY to deliver regardless of their chances of winning.

This is a CIVIC Duty. Please don't give up on NIGERIA

Exactly!! Where is LASIEC? No sensitization. No campaign. We appear to be focused at the centre (Federal level) while these guys steal so much at grassroot.

Forget it, Lagos is not Osun.

Ambode has exceeded the expectations of everyone and he's made Lagos APC candidates very desirable.

I'll be very surprised if APC doesn't win 90% of Lagos Councils. It's only Badagry that may prove problematic as it has always been traditionally PDP.

PDP has a prospect of winning Ojo LG too, but Igbos who returned PDP legislators in the 2015 elections usually don't vote in LG elections.

As for Oshodi, the APC machinery there has been given the marching order to deliver Oshodi or face the wrath of the LASG. The nonsense that happened with an Igbo PDP legislator being elected mustn't repeat itself.
