The Ogun State government has said that it is gearing up to conduct local government election soon.
Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Afolabi Afuape, disclosed this over the weekend in an interview with news men in Abeokuta.
Afuape noted that the recent appointment of a new Permanent Secretary for the Ogun State Independent Electoral Commission was an indication that the election will come up soon.
He said, “We are also thinking of having the board of OGSIEC soon and preparing for local government election.
“The board, when constituted, will have to prepare for the election at least within a period not less than two to three months, while constitutionally, OGSIEC will have to give three months notice to allow all political parties to prepare themselves for the election.”
