The people of Lagos State will today elect their leaders at the grassroots level for the first time in about five years.
The local government election is expected to usher in new chairmen and councillors in the 20 local governments and 37 local council development areas (LCDAS) across the state.
LASIEC had announced that voting will open at 8 am and results of the July 22 local council polls will be announced at the ward collation centres.
However, rainfall and an early morning rush and traffic have created a temporary setback.
