Ibadan - The Independent National Electoral Commission has fixed August 20 to conduct by-election into Oorelope State Constituency in Oyo State.
This was contained in a statement issued on Tuesday in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, by Ayodele Folami, INEC’s Head of Voter Education and Publicity in the state.
Folami said the by-election was necessitated by the death of Tunji Aremu, who was elected to represent the constituency in the state House of Assembly.
