Govt To Conduct LG Elections After 10 Years.

Govt To Conduct LG Elections After 10 Years.

Anambra State House of Assembly on Wednesday passed a bill for a law to establish the state’s Independent Electoral Commission and for connected purposes.

The executive bill passed its second reading, after lawmakers made several contributions on the bill’s gains and its importance to the conduct of local government elections in the state.

The electoral law will be enacted on June 5, 2024, after the governor’s assent.

During Wednesday’s Plenary of the state House of Assembly, which was presided over by the Speaker, Somtochukwu Udeze, the state lawmakers resolved to the committee of the whole, where they took their turns going through the bill clause by clause, making necessary amendments and corrections.

Udeze, while reporting progress, commended the members for taking their time to do the needful and for contributing towards building a better Anambra State.

Recall that it has been over 10 years that elections at the local government levels were held in Anambra State as the last one was held in the twilight of former Governor Peter Obi’s administration in 2014.
