She stressed that the commission would, however, monitor developments at the various collation centres and other locations in the state through reports sent to the Election Support Centre at the headquarters by field officers of the Commission.
Meanwhile, the Commission has continued the deployment of non-sensitive materials to the electoral officers in the 57 local governments/local council development areas of the state in preparation for the elections.
With the early deployment of the materials, the Commission intends to eliminate any delay that could militate against the smooth conduct of the elections on Saturday.
The electoral officers are expected to distribute the materials to supervisory presiding officers in their LGs/LCDAs who will, in turn, distribute the materials to the presiding officers for the conduct of the elections.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the Lagos state government announced the restriction of vehicular movement on Saturday July 22, in view of the local government elections holding the state.
The elections will hold across the 20 LGs and 37 LCDAs across the state.
