– Ondo State local government election postponed indefinitely
– No political party complied with election guidelines
– New election date to be announced later

The Ondo State Independent Electoral Commission (ODIEC) has postponed the local government election indefinitely, citing non-compliance with election guidelines by political parties.

The election was previously scheduled for July 13, 2024.

ODIEC Chairman Dr. Joseph Aremo explained that the commission had not received candidate nominations from any political party, despite issuing guidelines on time. “We are yet to receive the nomination of candidates, yet to verify and release it to the public for scrutiny,” Aremo said.
