The Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission extended the submission of candidates’ names to March 23, 2018, while May 12, 2018, election date remains unchanged.
The OYSIEC chairman, Mr Jide Ajeigbe has published a Public notice making it clear that it was due to the complaints, pressures, and agitations from various stakeholders including the political parties on the clarity of ward delineation boundaries.
“This will enable parties to understand and know the boundaries/delineation of the wards in the newly created LCDAs,” he said.
He further informed the media that the Local Government Elections slated for May, 12th 2018 will remain unchanged as they will not allow any further extension.
