The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has announced the postponement of bye elections in 6 Senatorial Districts and 9 state constituencies.
The Nigerian electoral body disclosed this in a statement released on Thursday, October 22, Naija News reports.
According to INEC, the decision was as a result of current security challenges in the states where the bye-elections are scheduled to hold.
The commission, however, said it will continue to monitor carefully situations in all states and constituencies involved, and will reach out to all stakeholders in the next two weeks to review the situations.
