Oyo Local Government Elections to Hold May 12
Barring any unforeseen circumstance, elections into local government areas and local council development areas in Oyo State will hold on May 12, 2018.
This is coming after more than 7 years without elected officials in the council.
The Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission, OYSIEC announced the date today.
The elections, which should have taken place in February 2017, was suspended following an Abuja Federal High Court order instituted by some traditional rulers and community heads over contentious issues in of the newly created LCDAs.
The baales agreed to withdraw the case in December 2017 and the government got the go-ahead to conduct the elections.
