The Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) has postponed the Adamawa governorship election slated for Jan. 14, to Jan. 21.
The INEC Chairman, Attahiru Jega, said in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday that the election was postponed because of the prevailing situation in Adamawa.
Prof Jega said that the decision was taken after due consultations with relevant stakeholders in the state.
He said, “The governorship election will now hold on Saturday, Jan. 21, instead of Jan. 14, as earlier scheduled.
“INEC reassures all Nigerians, and Adamawa residents in particular, of its determination to conduct free, fair and credible election in the state.”
Prof Jega said INEC was working very closely with all stakeholders, including security agencies, to ensure a conducive environment for the conduct of the election.
