The Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, has reportedly postponed the governorship and state assembly elections to March 18 instead of the initially slated date of March 11, 202.

According to sources familiar with the matter, the postponement became necessary due to a lack of time to reconfigure the BVAS.

“The elections were postponed to allow one more week for preparations,” an official said by telephone on Wednesday night. “We should be able to get everything in order before March 18.” 

The meeting is yet to be concluded but the postponement has been deemed inevitable.
