INEC has decided to halt the re-run elections in 20 polling units

Date:

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has halted re-run elections in 20 polling units across Kano, Enugu, and Akwa-Ibom states.

This decision follows disruptions, irregularities, and the abduction of election officials.

 

The National Commissioner, Sam Olumekun, revealed the suspension, citing specific incidents in constituencies such as Ikono/Ini Federal Constituency in Akwa Ibom, Enugu South 1 State Constituency in Enugu, and Kunchi/Tsanyawa State Constituency in Kano.

INEC emphasized that this action aligns with the provisions of Section 24(3) of the Electoral Act, 2022, and has urged security agencies to investigate the incidents.

Further measures for the affected areas will be disclosed after the Commission’s meeting on Monday.
