No Plans To Postpone 2019 Elections-INEC




The rumour making the rounds that the 2019 elections will be postponed has been quashed.

According to the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Yakubu Mahmood, the elections will hold as scheduled.

Mahmood further said that there are no plans by the commission to shift the dates of the 2019 elections.

The INEC boss said this while reacting to claims that the elections might be postponed due to the several litigations arising from the primaries organised by political parties.

Speaking at a stakeholders meeting organised by INEC in Abuja Thursday February 7th, Mahmood said the commission has been dragged to court 640 times and received 540 applications for the certified true copy of documents arising from the various primaries but that none of these cases would warrant the elections to be postponed.

“Let me assure the nation and the stakeholders that smart card reader will be deployed in the 2019 elections. The next big issue for us is the voter register and the availability of the PVC” he said
