Just In: INEC postpones governorship, state assembly elections

Abuja—The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has reached a decision to postpone Saturday’s Governorship and State Assembly elections to March 18, 2023.

According to Channels TV, a top INEC official in Rivers State who craved anonymity confirmed the development on Wednesday evening.

The electoral umpire, the source added, will soon release an official statement about the postponement.

The postponement is due to the Commission’s inability to promptly commence reconfiguration of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) machines utilized during the February 25 presidential election to enable their use in the state elections.

INEC was earlier restrained from tampering with the information embedded in the BVAS machines until the due inspection was conducted and Certified True Copies (CTC) issued to candidates who are challenging the outcome of the presidential election.
