Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, on Tuesday, inaugurated the state’s Independent Electoral Commission (KWSIEC), with a charge to discharge its duties in accordance with the law.
But the PDP, the leading opposition party in the state, said there is nothing to celebrate about the move.
AbdulRazaq during the inauguration at the government house said the move “officially kicks off the process to conduct the local government elections in the state.
The commission is chaired by Okala Baba while Edret Sabi Abel, Engr Hassan Taiye Salam; Gbadeyan Gbadura Yomi; Ndama Al-hassan; Saka Balikis Kehinde and Engr Abdullah Janet Amudat will serve as members.

But reacting to the development, the Public Relations Officer of the PDP, Prince Tunji Morounfoye, told Daily Trust that, “Our party will take a decision on it later.
“There is nothing to celebrate about this. The bitter truth is that he refused to do this for four years and now he feels comfortable he has “won” re-election; he now inaugurates the electoral body of the local government.”
