BREAKING: INEC Postpones Presidential Election?

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is considering postponing Saturday’s presidential and national assembly elections, Premium Times is reporting.

Multiple sources close to the electoral commission said the postponement being considered is due to some logistics challenges being faced by the commission in many states. The electoral body is facing difficulty distributing sensitive electoral materials to some states of the federation, an official said.

Sources say a formal announcement is expected on Friday night.

It is unclear at this time what the new election date would be.

“There will definitely be a postponement but we are yet to take a decision on the new date,” an official said.

Another official said the commission is considering fixing the elections for Sunday.

Credible sources said INEC commissioners are currently locked in a meeting at the agency’s headquarters in Abuja.

Some of the states where the logistic challenges are said to occur include Niger and Ekiti.

Thesheet.ng reported that police intercepted 17 sacks containing thumb-printed ballot paper in Kano on Thursday.

Suspects told police that the election materials were meant for voter education.
