INEC has announced date for supplementary elections.
Glamtush reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced that all outstanding governorship, National and State Assembly supplementary elections will take place on Saturday, April 15.
This online newspaper understands that this was made known by the Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi on Monday.
Oyekanmi said, “Arising from its meeting held today, the Independent National Electoral Commission has decided that all outstanding governorship, National and State Assembly supplementary elections will take place on Saturday 15th April 2023.
“A detailed official statement will follow shortly.”
Glamtush reports that in Kebbi and Adamawa states, the governorship elections were declared inconclusive by INEC and supplementary elections scheduled to hold in some polling units in both states.
