INEC postpones 2019 general elections to February 23 and March 9

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has shifted the 2019 general election.

 

Multiple sources close to the electoral commission said the postponement being considered is due to some logistics challenges being faced by the commission in many states.

 

The electoral body is facing difficulty distributing sensitive electoral materials to some states of the federation, an official said.

Consequently, a new date has been fixed for the presidential/National Assembly and the governorship/states assemblies election.

 

Presidential and National Assembly elections will now hold on Saturday, February 23 while the governorship and state assembly elections will hold on Saturday, March 9.
