    INEC Has Postponed 2019 Election

    The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is considering postponing Saturday’s presidential and national assembly elections, NairaNaijaNews has learnt.

    Multiple sources close to the electoral commission said the postponement being considered is due to some logistics challenges being faced by the commission in many states.

    The electoral body is facing difficulty distributing sensitive electoral materials to some states of the federation, an official said.

    A formal announcement is expected on Friday night, our sources said.

    It is unclear at this time what the new election date would be.

    “There will definitely be a postponement but we are yet to take a decision on the new date,” an official said.

    Another official said the commission is considering fixing the elections for Sunday.

    Our sources said INEC commissioners are currently locked in a meeting at the agency’s headquarters in Abuja.

    Some of the states where the logistic challenges are said to occur include Niger and Ekiti.

    NairaNaijaNews published a report by the News Agency of Nigeria where the Resident Electoral Commissioner in Niger State said ballot papers for two of the state’s three senatorial districts were missing as of Friday evening.
