Bisi, the PDP chair, has stated that the Osun LG election will take place soon.

Sunday Bisi, the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Osun State, has assured that elections for local government councils will take place soon.

Bisi stated this on Monday during an appearance on a radio political programme in Osogbo.

The Osun PDP Chairman insisted that the Adeleke-led administration was ready to hold fresh elections into the state's local government councils, adding that preparations would begin once the 8th Assembly was inaugurated.

According to him, “The PDP-led administration under the leadership of Governor Ademola Adeleke will conduct local government election in due time.

“Once the 8th Osun State House of Assembly is inaugurated on June 6, the process to conduct the election will start.”

Local government election was last conducted by the Osun Independent Electoral Commission (OSIEC) on October 15, 2022 by the Adegboyega Oyetola administration.

The Osun PDP and other political parties boycotted the election on the ground that the process was not fair.

However, a Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo on November 25, 2022 nullified the election of all the chairmen and councillors under the APC.

Since the sacking of the local government executives, the third tier of government in Osun is being run without elected officers.

The Rauf Aregbesola administration had in 2017 changed the system of administration in the local councils from presidential to cabinet system.
