Just In: INEC Gives Fresh Update On Imo North Senatorial Election

Seven states of the  thirty -six states of the federation including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) will not participate in the governorship election holding today.

The seven states, Anambra, Bayelsa, Edo, Ekiti, Kogi, Ondo and Osun,  state are not participating because their governorship elections held at different times.

This was mainly due to court judgments that nullified the elections of their governors at different times in the past.

However, the State Houses of Assembly elections will be conducted in all the 36 states.

The FCT will not witness both elections because it is run by a minister, who is appointed by the President, with laws made by the National Assembly.

But Saturday will witness election of new chairmen and councillors in the six Area Councils of the territory, namely Abaji, Abuja Municipal, Bwari, Gwagwalada, Kuje and Kwali.
