    I was surprised when I saw that such a body exists in Ogun State: The Ogun State Independent Electoral Commission, (OGSIEC).

    I thought INEC was the only legal electoral body allowed throughout Nigeria, I didn’t know they got rivals at State levels?

    What does a body like OGSIEC do? If they conduct elections, then what’s the functions of INEC then?

    Or it is Local Governments and/or Local Council Development Areas elections that they conducts? Does that mean INEC doesn’t conduct such elections?

    If they and INEC work hand in hand at local or State levels, how? Don’t you think States can manipulate bodies like OGSIEC in elections, since they’re under the States?

    Isn’t this another way of creating useless bodies that waste States’ monies?

    Do all other States or most other States have something like this?
