An early morning downpour and voter’s apathy yesterday had hampered the commencement of the election at 8am as proposed in the 20 local governments and 37 Local Council Developments Areas (LCDAs).

It was an anti climax to months of painstaking preparation by the Justice Ayotunde Phillips (retired)-led   State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC).

The rain and the attendant flood in parts of the state prevented electoral officials from reaching their duty posts on time.

Thus, accreditation and voting which were supposed to commence at 8am began much beyond the scheduled time and only when the rain subsided.

Besides, many registered voters chose to stay indoors.

Only a few bothered to go out and vote except in  areas where  opposition parties  tried to have a foothold.

They include Mushin, Odi-Olowo/Ojuwoye, Ajeromi-Ifelodun, Ojo, Coker Aguda, Itire-Ikate, Agboyi-Ketu, and some parts of Ikorodu.

Youths turned the roads to temporary football ‘pitches’.

Some party officials attributed the low turnout to inadequate electoral awareness by  the LASIEC.

But Justice Philips dismissed any such suggestion, saying adequate publicity was carried out.

She admitted that these was delay in the commencement of the elections in some areas, which said was caused by rain.

She told reporters at Old Yaba Road while monitoring some polling units the area that the rain affected the movement of electoral materials.

She said all eligible voters would be allowed to exercise their right as there were enough materials.

“We are addressing the situation and we are assuring that everybody in the affected areas will vote once people have been accredited and are on the queue, they will be allowed to vote even after 3pm,” she said.

She expressed satisfaction with the peaceful conduct in most areas.

Phillips said there were a few cases of violence but said security agents had quelled the situation.

Lagos State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain Segun Adewale blamed LASIEC for ‘disappointing’ Lagosians.

He said the late arrival of voting materials discouraged some people from voting after waiting for hours at the polling station for voting materials to come.

He also accused supporters of the ruling APC of harassing people.

“People were harassed by members of the ruling APC, my own sister was beaten up and people could not vote before the end of the exercise,” he claimed.

Kebbi State House of Assembly Deputy Speaker Buhari Ailero, who led Election Observers from  other states, hailed the peaceful conduct of the poll.

Ailero confirmed that the election materials were distributed on time to the polling units.

He urged political parties to do more in mobilizing voters in subsequent elections.

Twelve  parties – Accord Party (AP); Action Alliance (AA); Alliance for Democracy ( AD ); All Progressives Congress ( APC ); Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP ); Labour Party ( LP ); All Progressives Grand Alliance ( APGA ); United Democratic Party (UDP); United Progressive Party (UPP); Kowa Party ( KP ); National Action Council ( NAC ); and Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM).

LG Poll: Lagos Govt. Extends Restriction of Movement

The Lagos State Government on Wednesday extended the restriction of movement across the State noting that it had been slightly expanded and will now be enforced between 7 am and 3pm on Saturday July 22, to allow for a smooth conduct of the Local Government elections and unhindered participation.

In a statement issued by the State’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, the Government also reiterated the call for a peaceful and orderly conduct by the electorate, on Saturday, as the dtate holds elections that will usher in new Chairmen and Councillors in the 20 Local Government and 37 Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) across the State.

According to the Commissioner, the State Government and security agencies will leave no stone unturned in ensuring a free and fair election, while ensuring safety of electoral officials and voters.

He also urged residents to be peaceful and orderly in casting and protecting their votes in their respective wards for Chairmen and councilors who are expected to drive development at the third tier of government.

Ayorinde explained that as the election that would bring on board a new set of public officers for the next four years at the local government level, the restriction of movement will allow the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission and the security agencies to distribute electoral materials in good time and ensure a seamless electoral process.

“The police and other security agencies have been maintaining law and order since the commencement of campaign by political parties. They are poised to ensure that the voting on Saturday is conducted smoothly without public disturbance,” he said.

He added that all political parties, candidates and their supporters as well as the general public are assured of safety throughout the period of voting and collation.

Lagos LG Polls: APC Harvests Mass Defection Of PDP, LP, AD Members

Barely four days to the local council elections in Lagos State, many members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Labour Party (LP) and Alliance for Democracy have defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The thousands of electorates from other parties who decamped to APC pledged to mobilize for the victory of APC and support the APC Candidate in Agbado Oke Odo L.C.D.A , Augustine Adeoye Arogun that received them to the party on behalf of the chairman of the party Otunba Henry Ajomale

To consolidate its winning edge over other parties in the polls, groups under the aegis of De-Fash Movement (DFM), Awori Vanguard (AV), Lagosians Future Group (LFG), Asiwaju National Forum (ANF) among others have intensified house to house campaign all over state to support the APC Candidates.

The groups have placed the mobilizing team to move around the nook and cranny of the state to soliciting for support of the electorates for APC candidates.

Commenting on the mass defection of members to APC , the group leader Mr. Seyi Bamigbade who led a grassroots campaign to solicit support for the party’s candidates across the state during the House to House flagged off at their secretariat in Lagos said the confusion and crisis rocking other parties made the members to join their party.

“I a party like PDP , a faction of the party have gone to join Labour Party before the Supreme Court ruling. Their members are confused, so they have no option than to decamp to APC,” he said.

Bamigbade who hailed Governor Ambode for his efforts in making life easy for the residents of the state, added that PDP will not win any of the councils because of the excellent performance of the governor.

“We have worked hard and will clear the polls, APC has the support of the people. Through this we would be able to harness the development we are witnessing in Lagos at the grassroots level, through the synchronized effort of the Governor.

“The election of APC into the local governments will also ensure the success of Ambode in his relentless effort to building and developing Lagos.
