The Independent National Electoral Commission has postponed the governorship and state assembly elections till March 18.
The electoral body took the decision on the issue at a meeting of its national commissioner on Wednesday night.
The exercise was previously scheduled to hold on March 11, but INEC, citing a logistics crisis stemming from BVAS configuration and transportation, said the election could not hold again as scheduled following a meeting of its executives on Wednesday evening.
“The elections were postponed to allow one more week for preparations,” an official familiar with the meeting said on Wednesday night. “We should be able to get everything in order before March 18.”
