THE Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has called for the dissolution of the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission, LASIEC, in order to ensure confidence returns before the conduct of the 2014 LG polls.
In a statement by its State publicity Secretary, Mr Taofik Gani, the party blamed the insincerity of the LASIEC chairman for the alleged irregularities witnessed during the conduct of 2011 local government elections which held across the 20 local councils and 37 local council development areas.
It, however, berated the LASIEC chairman for allegedly misrepresenting the facts when he stated that he announced the winners as declared by the various returning officers whereas the declaration made by Mrs Fatoyinbo of Badagry in favour of PDP chairmanship candidate was altered by him.
Besides, it described the LASIEC chairman as a “failure and the reason why the electoral body failed as a whole.”
