I want to admonish the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC), to ensure that it does everything humanly possible to conduct free, fair and credible local government elections in Lagos scheduled to hold this month.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu as the governor of the state should also endeavour to give the electoral body free hands to do its job without any interference or pressure.
This month’s local government elections will showcase how the 2023 elections will go in the state. Lagosians will want their votes to count and are desirous to vote for the candidates of their choice to emerge in the various councils.
In the interest of peace, the elections must be credible, free and fair. Lagos state should serve as a pacesetter for other states and create a model that can be imitated across the country.
Chief Adesunbo Onitiri, Lagos
