“There are no conditions under which elections will be postponed “- INEC chairman says

The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu, says the date for the 2019 general elections will not be shifted.

The INEC boss disclosed this on Friday in an interview with journalists at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

“There are no conditions under which elections will be postponed under section 26 of the Electoral Act.

The date is firm and fixed, February 16, 2019. We issued the timetable well in advance.

For the very first time in the history of our elections, citizens of Nigeria know when elections will take place, one year in advance” Yakubu said.
