The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) may have scheduled the run-off governorship elections in Imo, Abia and Taraba states on Saturday April 18
A top source at the commission, on Wednesday on condition of anonymity, confirmed this, although the official announcement was yet to be made as at the time of filling the report.
He said: “Yes, it is true that the run-off elections in the three states has been fixed for Saturday. The announcement will be made soon by the relevant authority.”
The source also said that INEC was making all arrangements to ensure that the run-off elections were successful in the three states.
The commission had declared the Imo State gubernatorial election inconclusive following the cancellation of results from 216 polling units that cut across 23 local governments with about 144 accredited voters.
Also, in Abia State, the elections were declared inconclusive because the state electoral officer was said to have earlier cancelled the results from Obioma Ngwa, Isiala Ngwa and Osisioma Ngwa local government area, only to later authenticate the results, a development that led to protests by members of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
