Abuja – The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has postpone the governorship and state house of assembly elections scheduled for Saturday, March 11 to Saturday, March 18.
INEC is yet to officially announce the postponement but credible sources within the commission said it was true.
The sources said the inability of the commission to re- configure the BVAS forced the postponement of the governorship and the house of assembly elections.
“You know that the BVAS re-configuration would take three or four days and since they would all be moved to the headquarters in Abuja, the machines would be re-configured and deployed to the various states and finally to the polling units,” one of the officials said.
The official said the management of the commission is currently holding a meeting, where it was considering either March 18 or March 25 for the elections.
It was however, learnt that March 18 ,was chosen. (vitalnewsngr.com)
