Update: Edo Governorship election to hold as scheduled - INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday said the Edo State governorship would go election as scheduled.

The INEC National Commissioner in-charge of Voter Education and Publicity, Mr. Solomon Soyebi, stated this at a press conference held at INEC’s office in Benin, the state capital.

Soyebi said INEC as the body statutorily set up to conduct elections in the country would not take orders from any institution on its constitutional duties.

“We have therefore weighed all the consequences of a postponement in the election and have resolved to go ahead with the conduct of the election on Saturday as scheduled,’’ the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted the INEC official as saying at the briefing.
