and National Assembly elections till next week 23 February.
It was one of the decisions reached early today in a crunch talk between between INEC
chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu and 12 national commissioners in Abuja, according to
sources close to the meeting.
Professor Yakubu will be briefing the media later today on the decision, amidst reports of
logistics problems faced by the commission.
The meeting, which began Friday evening, was still in progress up till 1.30 a.m.
Rotimi Oyekanmi, the chief press secretary to the INEC
chairman told newsmen that the
decision of the meeting will be communicated later today and that some decision about the
election had been reached.
“I can confirm to you that the INEC Chairman and the 12 national commissioners are in the
meeting.
” Decisions have been taken and you will be addressed later,” Oyekanmi said.
Presidential and National Assembly elections are scheduled to take place throughout the
country today, while governorship and state assembly elections will take place on 2 March.
The national elections are expected to hold at 119,973 polling units across the country while
collation of results will take place in 8,809 Registration Areas or Wards, 774 Local Government
Areas and 36 States and the FCT.
It will not be the first time that the commission would postpone a scheduled general election.
In 2015, the presidential election was shifted from February 14 to March 28th, 2015; while the
governorship and assembly elections scheduled for 28 February were shifted to 11 April.
