Lagos LG polls: Results to be announced at LG, Ward levels – LASIEC Chairman
July 24, 2021
The Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) says results of Saturday’s local government election in the state will be declared at the ward and local government levels.
Retired Justice Ayotunde Phillips, the Chairman of LASIEC, said this while briefing newsmen on Saturday after touring some polling units in Lagos Mainland Local Government Area and Yaba Local Council Development Area. (LCDA).
Phillips said winners of chairmanship elections would be declared at the Local Government Collation Centres, while winners of the councilorship polls would be declared at the Ward Collation Centres.
“For the chairmanship candidates, results will be declared at the local government levels, while for the councilors, it is going to be at the ward level. We don’t announce results in LASIEC,” the chairman said.
Voter apathy and malfunctioning of Smart Card Readers delayed the poll in many polling units earlier in the day. (NAN)
