Nigeria’s electoral commission, INEC, will on 15 April, conclude the 2023 General elections with supplementary elections in 2,660 polling units across 185 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of 24 states.
The commission had conducted the presidential and National Assembly elections on 25 February and the governorship and state houses of assembly polls on 18 March.
The supplementary elections conclude the governorship, state houses of assembly, senatorial and house of representatives elections in constituencies where they were previously suspended due to some reasons including violence and situations where the votes margin between the winner and the first runner up is less than the cancelled votes.
The supplementary governorship elections will be held in 20 LGAs of each of Adamawa and Kebbi states. Both states have a total of 21 LGAs each.
In Adamawa, the elections will be held in a total of 69 polling units (PUs) and 142 PUs in Kebbi states with 36,935 and 94,209 eligible voters, respectively. Eligible voters are the total number of voters who have collected their PVCs.
