The Election May Not Hold Again On Saturday 16, 2019 As Proposed - INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said few minutes ago that they are preparing for the postponement of Saturday’s presidential and national assembly elections.


A sources in connection with 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.

A formal announcement is expected on Friday night, our sources said. It is unclear at this time what the new election date would be.

There will definitely be a postponement but we are yet to take a decision on the new date,” an official said.

Another official said the commission is considering fixing the elections for Sunday.
