The Kwara State House of Assembly has successfully passed a bill aimed at amending the Kwara State Local Government Electoral Law. This legislative move holds implications for the upcoming local government polls in the state.
The session, presided over by Speaker Hon. Yakubu Danladi, saw unanimous support for the electoral bill amendment. Following the successful passage, Speaker Danladi directed the Clerk of the House, Alhaji Abdul-kareem Olayiwola Ahmed, to present a clean copy of the bill to the Governor for approval.
One key provision of the amended Kwara State Local Government Electoral Law is the stipulation of a 360-day notice period for the conduct of local government elections.
The passage of this amendment signifies a crucial step toward the realization of local government polls in Kwara State.
The responsibility for conducting these polls is expected to rest with Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq. The amendment to the electoral law is anticipated to enhance the efficiency and transparency of the electoral process, providing a robust framework for the forthcoming local government elections.
