UPDATE | INEC Postpones Edo Election

Following "security report", the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has postpone the Edo State governorship election by two weeks.

The election had earlier been scheduled for Saturday September 10, 2016. Inside sources confirmed that the election may now hold in two weeks.

“We shall meet to take a decision. At the moment it is no longer feasible to deploy and conduct the elections. NYSC has advised us that many parents have called to withdraw their children from election duty. Since they form the bulk of election duty personnel, their withdrawal is a major challenge.”
