Lagos Assembly amends LASIEC law
The Lagos State House of Assembly, yesterday, reviewed and amended a portion of the law creating the state’s Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC).
The Assembly amended the law by creating a sub-section for Section 2 of the law.
The newly-added sub-section 5 gives the governor the power to extend the tenure of the commission based on exigencies.
The Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, said that the amendment became expedient to ensure that the process leading to effective conclusion of council election in the state is not hampered as a result of the soon-to-end tenure of members of LASIEC.
He directed the Clerk of the House, Mr. Olalekan Onafeko, to pass the clean copy to the governor for assent.
