The Independent National Electoral Commisslon (INEC) has fixed March 9 to conduct a supplementary presidential election in areas where the poll was cancelled last Saturday.
INEC’s national commissioner for information and voter education, Festus Okoye said the supplementary polls will be conducted alongside the governorship and state houses of assembly elections.
Okoye said the decision was reached during the commission’s meeting with resident electoral commissioners (RECs) on Thursday in Abuja.
“Consequently, the meeting decided that supplementary elections will be conducted in all areas where elections did not take place and/or where returns could not be made on Satutday, 9th March 2019 alongside the Governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections,” Okoye said in a statement issued Friday.
Some of the places affected include two local government areas in River state as well as other parts of Lagos and Anambra states.
