Why We Postponed General Elections – INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Saturday explained why it postponed the general elections.

INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, addressed reporters at the press centre of the commission’s headquarters in Abuja, the nation’s Capital.

The Presidential and National Assembly elections were earlier scheduled to hold on February 16, while that of Governorship and State House of Assembly were expected to hold on March 2.

Professor Yakubu, however, told reporters that the polls would not go on as planned due to some challenges encountered by the commission.

According to him, the decision to postpone the polls followed a careful review of the implementation of the logistics and operational plans put in place for the exercise.

The INEC boss reiterated the commitment of the electoral body to conducting a free, fair, and credible exercise.

He explained that the postponement of the elections would afford them the opportunity to address the issues raised, although the decision was a tough one to make.

Professor Yakubu revealed that the commission would inform critical stakeholders in the elections about the new development at a meeting which would hold later on Saturday.
