The Ogun State Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Afolabi Afuape, says the state is gearing up to conduct local government election.
Afuape said the recent appointment of a new Permanent Secretary for the Ogun State Independent Electoral Commission was an indication of this.
A statement on Sunday quoted him to have spoken to journalists in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital “at the weekend.”
Afuape 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.”
