INEC Postpones Presidential & National Election To February 23



The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has postponed the presidential and National Assembly election.

In a press release delivered by Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, INEC national chairman during the early hours of Saturday morning, the commission officially announced the shift in the 2019 general elections by a week.

The commission cited that based on its current analysis of the situation on ground, it had reached a tough decision to shift the presidential and National Assembly election to February 23. “proceeding with the election as scheduled is no longer feasible”, Yakubu said.



In addition, the gubernatorial and House of Assembly election scheduled for February 2 have also been postponed by a week. This means the gubernatorial and House of Assembly election would now hold on March 9.

INEC released an official statement to that effect.
