PDP gives LASIEC 21 days to release guidelines for LG polls
As uncertainty continues to surround conduct of local government elections in Lagos State, the PDP has given the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) a 21-day ultimatum to publish notice and guidelines for the polls.
The party in Lagos said that failure to publish notice and guidelines for the polls would prompt its members to tell Lagosians to stop dealing with the councils because doing so would amount to lawlessness and brigandage.
In a statement issued by its publicity secretary, Taofiq Gani, yesterdauy, the PDP said: “It is well known fact that the APC is not fashionable for any political victory at this present time. This is the main reason why they delayed council polls for close to three years. This is no more acceptable. The APC can at least allow the polls and go ahead to characteristically rig the results.
“Blatantly denying the people of representative government of their choice at that tier of government is the height of impunity and unconstitutionalism in this government.”
