The elections for the state house of representatives and governors will take place on March 11 as scheduled, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission.
INEC provided the reassurance in a statement released by its spokesman Festus Okoye on Thursday in Abuja.
Every step leading up to the polls, according to the electoral umpire, has been completed.
The INEC statement reads: “The commission held its regular weekly meeting and deliberated on several issues, including the presidential and National Assembly elections,” said INEC. “It also discussed the governorship and state assembly elections and the pending elections in Enugu East senatorial district and the Esan Central/Esan West and Igueben federal constituencies in Edo.
“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.”
