The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday said it would conduct supplementary elections in senatorial and federal constituencies where returns were not made after the February 25 Presidential and National Assembly elections.
Festus Okoye, the INEC National Commissioner in charge of Information and Voter Education, stated this in a statement in Abuja.
He said, “The Commission is aware that in some Senatorial Districts and Federal Constituencies, Declarations and Returns were not made.
“The Commission is compiling the list of the affected constituencies. A date for supplementary elections will be fixed after the Governorship and State Assembly elections.”
Okoye also noted that INEC held its regular weekly meeting on Thursday and deliberated on different issues, including the Presidential and National Assembly elections and the pending elections in Enugu East Senatorial District and the Esan Central/Esan West and Igueben Federal Constituencies in Edo State.
He added that the Commission would conduct the re-scheduled elections in Edo and Enugu States on Saturday, March 11 2023, along with the Governorship and State Assembly elections.
