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 ateas (LCDAs) in the state.
The Chairman of the Commission, Mr Jide Ajeigbe who disclosed this at a press briefing in Ibadan said newly registered political parties will be accommodated.
The elections will be conducted into the 33 local government areas and 35 LCDA’s
Recall 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The suit was withdrawn in December 2017.
