The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says re-run and bye-elections may be held across the country next February.
Mahmood Yakubu, the chairman of the electoral body, made this claim during a meeting with political parties.
“With regard to the bye-elections, you may recall that in my recent address at the swearing-in of new Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) which was combined with our last quarterly meeting with the RECs nationwide, I made a commitment that the Commission will conduct elections to fill vacancies in the National and State Assembly constituencies,” the INEC chief told the Monday gathering at the Commission’s office in Abuja.
“The Commission is looking at the first week of February 2024 i.e. in just a little over one month to conduct both the re-run and bye-elections.”
