The Lagos State Football Association Electoral Committee has confirmed May 27 as the new date for election into the association.
Lagos FA Elections Committee Chairman, Segun Babatunde said the elections, which should have been held earlier, had to be deferred due to the directives from the Nigeria Football Federation who postponed all elections into Football Associations across the country.
Babatunde assured that all is now set for elections as they are determined to conduct a free and fair election that all football stakeholders in Lagos will be proud of.
“As you are all aware, we have concluded all the processes of forms collection, screening and publishing of successful candidates.
“We should have done these elections before now, but had to postpone it because of the directives from the NFF,” he explained.
Elections will also be conducted into the various five football divisions across the state on May 17.
According to the schedule of events released, the collection of forms will be between April 18 and 25.
Submission of forms will be between April 26 and May 2, and then the screening of applicants will commence on May 6 and 7.
