LG election: Osun will adopt presidential system – OSSIEC

Published

on

The Chairman of the Osun State Independent Electoral Commission, OSSIEC, Hashim Abioye has once again reiterated that the presidential system of government will be adopted for the local government election in the state.

Abioye made this known on a radio political programme monitored by Pmnews.ng in Osogbo on Monday.

Pmnews.ng recalls that OSSIEC announced in February that the local government poll will come up on February 15, 2025.

Also, Pmnews.ng recalled that the Cabinet system of government was adopted for the local government poll in 2017.

The Osun State House of Assembly in 2022 passed the OSSIEC Law, 2022 which readopted the presidential system.

The OSSIEC chairman also stated that the basis for the adoption of the system was premised on the Electoral Act, 2022 which was passed by the National Assembly.

In his words, “OSSIEC Law, 2022 stipulated the presidential system for the local government poll in Osun State.

“That is what we will adopt for the local government election in Osun in 2025. The Electoral Act, 2022 will be complied with in totality. OSSIEC will not go against it.”

Abioye also revealed that no law stops the Commission from conducting the local government election in the state.

He added that he has held meetings with the Osun chapter of the Inter-Party Advisory Council, IPAC and political parties where they indicated their readiness to partake in the local government poll.
