The government of Lagos state has announced restriction of vehicular movement on Saturday, July 22 – a day when elections will hold across the 20 local governments and 37 local council development areas of the state.

The announcement was made in a statement issued on Sunday by Mr Steve Ayorinde, the state’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, who averred that the restriction of movement would be enforced between 8a.m and 2pm.

According to him, the move was aimed to allow for a smooth conduct of the polls and seamless participation.

The commissioner also urged residents to be peaceful and orderly on Saturday as they cast their votes in their respective wards for chairmen and councilors who were expected to drive development at the third tier of government.

He said: “The police and other security agencies are ready to ensure that the electioneering campaign and the voting on Saturday are conducted smoothly without public disturbance.

“Every political party, candidates and their supporters, and the general public are hereby assured of safety throughout the period of voting and collation.

“However, the government solicits the cooperation of voters and the general public by obeying the restriction order and the general electoral rules in order to ensure a peaceful conduct before, during and after the elections.”

The Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) had last week announced that 12 parties would participate in the July 22 election.

The parties are as follow: All Progressives Congress (APC), Action Alliance (AA), Alliance for Democracy (AD), Labour Party (LP), All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Accord Party, Kowa Party, National Action Council (NAC), People’s Democratic Movement (PDM), United Democratic Party (UDP) and United Progressive Party (UPP).
