Breaking: INEC to Postpone Presidential Election

There are strong indications that the Presidential Election scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday 16th February may be postponed.

This comes as the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, holds an emergency meeting with some election observers and security officials aimed at reaching an agreement on a new date.

INEC has been forced to consider announcing the postponement because of logistics challenge of distributing election materials.

This echoes the situation in 2015 when the Commission headed then by Professor Attahiru Jega shifted the Presidential/National Assembly Election date from February 14 and Governorship/States Assemblies election date billed for February 28 to March 28 and April 11, 2015 respectively, citing security reasons.
