Lagos bye election: We are good to go- INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it is fully prepared for the conduct of the Lagos constituency bye-election in Eti-Osa Local Government Area on Sept. 30.

Reports that the election is to fill the vacant seat as a result of the death of the lawmaker representing the area, Mr Kazeem Alimi on July 8.

INEC Resident Electoral Commission in the state Sam Olumekun told NAN on Wednesday in Lagos that the commission had concluded all arrangements to conduct the polls.

“We are ready for the election, everything is in place, and we are good to go.

“We have started receiving non-sensitive materials for the conduct of the election and our personnel too have been fully prepared.
