Barring any further extensions, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has reached a decision to postpone Saturday’s Governorship and State Assembly elections to March 18, 2023.
A top INEC official confirmed the development to Stonix News on Wednesday evening in Warri, Delta State.
The electoral umpire, the source added, will soon release an official statement about the postponement.
The postponement, as gathered, is due to the Commission’s inability to promptly commence the reconfiguration of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) machines used during the February 25 presidential election for Saturday exercise.
INEC was earlier restrained from tampering with the information embedded in the BVAS machines until the due inspection was conducted and Certified True Copies (CTC) issued to candidates who are challenging the outcome of the presidential election
