PDP kicks as Kwara Assembly amends local government electoral law

PDP kicks as Kwara Assembly amends local government electoral law

The Kwara State House of Assembly has amended the state’s local government electoral law.

The amendment followed the consideration of a report presented by the chairman, House Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Judiciary, Hon. Salahu Folabi Ganiyu.

The amendment, among others, seeks to change the number of days for notice of election.

The opposition PDP in a statement by its publicity secretary, Olusegun Adewara, expressed disappointment over the amendment, saying it was a ‘technical way to extend the conduct of LG election in the state to 2025.

Following the passage, the chairman of Kwara State Independent Electoral Commission (KWSIEC), Mr Okanla Baba, said his agency would, next month, announce the timetable for the conduct of the local government election in the state.

“We urge all stakeholders to support the process”, Baba added in a statement sent to our correspondent on Thursday.

The last local government election in the state was held six years ago, according to Daily Trust.
