The date for the issuance of Certificates of Return to Lagos state Governor-elect, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and his deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat has been shifted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
According to INEC Spokesman, Mr Femi Akinbiyi, the event, which was scheduled earlier for Wednesday, has been shifted to Friday.
Akinbiyi, however, said that the commission would later announce a new date for the issuance of certificates to the 40 lawmakers-elect of the Lagos State House of Assembly.
“The event will take place at the INEC Lagos office, 6, Birrel Avenue Sabo-Yaba at 11a.m.
“A new date will be announced later for the presentation of Certificates of Return to the 40 elected members of Lagos State House of Assembly,” Akinbiyi said.
INEC had on March 21, in a statement signed by its Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mr Sam Olumekun, announced that it would present the certificates to the newly- elected officers on March 27.
According to Olumekun, the presentation is in conformity with section 75 (1) of the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended).
