2023 ELECTION: INEC clears air on postponing elections
Despite the country's insecurity, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has stated that the general election scheduled for 2023 would take place as planned.
At a public presentation in Abuja on Thursday, Mahmood Yakubu, the chairman of the electoral body, stated this.
According to Yakubu, the new electoral act will also control next year's elections.
Clearly, these are challenging times, but we are determined that the election must be held in 2023.
However, this is a shared responsibility. INEC plays a critical role, but the commission alone cannot deliver the elections we all desire.
“I, therefore, appeal to all Nigerians to join hands with us in ensuring that we make a success of the process,” Yakubu said.
