The Lagos government has announced a restriction of movement across the state between 8.00 a.m. and 3.00 p.m. on Saturday ahead of its local government elections.
The Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, announced this in a statement on Thursday.
Mr Omotoso said the restriction was to enable the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) to conduct hitch-free elections into the positions of chairmen and councillors in the 20 local governments areas and 37 LCDAs.
He added that the restriction would facilitate ease of movement of the electorates, election materials, and LASIEC officials for the sanctity of the election.
According to him, the restriction will facilitate effective monitoring and enhanced security during the election.
”All eligible voters are urged to participate in the election, which requires the cooperation of all residents,” he said.
