Yobe to spend N700m on Nov. 25 LG election – Official

The Yobe State Independent Electoral Commission (YOSIEC) has proposed N700 million for the conduct of local government councils’ election slated for Nov. 25.

He said that Gov. Mai Mala Buni had earlier approved the elections which would produce 17 local council chairmen and 178 councilors.
