INEC Lists States Where National Assembly Election Will Be Repeated

INEC Takes Action On Ruling To Allow Nigerians To Vote Without PVCs

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has revealed the National Assembly elections will be repeated tomorrow, March 18 in eight senatorial districts and 33 federal constituencies spread across 15 states.

Naija News learnt that the supplementary election will be conducted alongside the governorship and House or Assembly elections.

Recall that the Senatorial election did not hold in Enugu East Senatorial District following the demise of Labour Party candidate, Oyibo Chukwu, a few days before the February 25 election.

There was also no election in Esan Central/Esan West/Igueben Federal Constituency in Edo State as a result of the omission of the logo of one of the parties while the three Senatorial Districts and 11 Federal Constituencies were suspended by INEC in Sokoto.
