Nigeria: It’s Official – INEC Postpones All Nigeria’s General Elections

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

This was announced in Abuja by the chairman of INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu around 2.45 am on Saturday, February 16, after he held an emergency meeting with security officials, election observers and other stakeholders. He said proceeding with the election as scheduled is no longer feasible and as result of this, the election was postponed by a week.

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.
