Lagos - The Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) on Tuesday said that the unavailability of voters’ register and amendment of the electoral law were delaying the conduct of local government elections.
Olalekan Mabinuori, one of the commissioners in LASIEC, made the disclosure at a Political Stakeholders Forum organised by the commission in Lagos.
Mabinuori said that there were processes to be followed and modalities to be put in place before a date would be fixed for the council election.
