The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Lagos State has made known its aim to present Certificates of Return this Friday to the members-elect of the Lagos State House of Assembly.
The information was released by INEC Public Relations Officer(PRO), Mr Femi Akinbiyi earlier today in Lagos.
According to him, the event will take place at the INEC Lagos office Sabo Yaba at 10 a. m.
“The members were elected among the 640 candidates that contested the March 9th House of Assembly elections,” Akinbiyi stated .
It should be noted that the 40 seats in the Assembly were won by candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) during the March 9 Governorship and State Houses of Assembly Elections.
On March 25th, after initially shifting the date for the issuance of Certificates of Return to the Governor-elect, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and his deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, the Independent National Electoral Commission promised to announce a new date for the issuance of the certificates to the 40 lawmakers-elect of the Lagos State House of Assembly.
INEC had on March 29 presented Certificates of Return to the Lagos State Governor-elect, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat at the commission’s office in Sabo, Yaba and will now do same for the lawmakers on Friday.
