Lagos bye election: We are good to go – INEC



INEC inaugurates committee to monitor parties’ campaign spending

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it is fully prepared for the conduct of the Lagos constituency bye-election in Eti-Osa Local Government Area on Sept. 30.

Our correspondent reports that the election is to fill the vacant seat as a result of the death of the lawmaker representing the area, Mr Kazeem Alimi on July 8.

INEC Resident Electoral Commission in the state Sam Olumekun told our correspondent on Wednesday in Lagos that the commission had concluded all arrangements to conduct the polls.

“We are ready for the election, everything is in place, and we are good to go.

“We have started receiving non-sensitive materials for the conduct of the election and our personnel too have been fully prepared.

“We will ensure the peaceful and credible conduct of the election and meet the expectations of stakeholders,’’ he said.

He said the details of how the commission would go about the election would be made public in the coming days.

The commissioner, however, urged stakeholders and the public to give the commission the necessary support to ensure hitch-free conduct of the election.
