INEC reschedules cancelled Edo NASS election

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has announced that the cancelled National Assembly election for Orhionmwon in Edo State will hold Saturday, April 11.

The state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mike Igini, announced this Monday.

The March 28 National Assembly election was cancelled due to non-availability of electoral materials including result sheets.

“Quite a number of challenges which arose during the March 28 elections and were brought to our attention by the public have been acknowledged,” the REC said.

“I will be meeting with electoral officers after this conference to review the outcome of the March 28 polls.

“Lessons learnt will be used in planning for Saturday’s State House of Assembly elections,” he said.

Mr. Igini warned electoral officers against violating the commission’s electoral procedure.

“The April 11 election is going to be more challenging because it involves representation at the grass root level.

“As such a breach of electoral procedures would not be tolerated; reactions would be swift and immediate if there are any,” he stressed.
