The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State has announced that it will run candidates in the upcoming municipal election.
The APC is the state’s main political party of opposition.
The Independent Electoral Commission of Oyo State (OYSIEC), according to a report in the EBANTAL has completed preparations to hold local government elections in the State.
A date in April 2024 has been set for the election.

Since OYSIEC has written to us about the extension of the deadline for the conduct of primary, which is now August 31, 2023, I can promise that “by the time we are done with our final round of consultation on or before Monday, we will roll out a schedule of activities.”
