INEC Speaks On Postponing Edo, Ondo Governorship Elections

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Monday denied reports that the Edo and Ondo States Governorship elections have been postponed.

INEC National Commissioner, Festus Okoye, made this known in a statement to newsmen.

According to the INEC official, the Edo and Ondo elections timetable has not been adjusted.

“The Commission wishes to inform the general public that no decision has been taken to postpone the Edo and Ondo governorship election or adjust the timetable and schedule of activities for the said election scheduled for 19th September and 10th October 2020 respectively.

“It will be recalled that the Commission on the 6th February 2020 released the Timetable and Schedule of Activities for the two elections. Since then, the timetable has not been adjusted.

“While we are mindful of the negative impact of the coronavirus pandemic, we are also monitoring the various efforts by the Federal and State Governments, health authorities and other stakeholders to contain the spread of and eliminate COVID-19.

”If and when the need arises to adjust the timetable for the election, the same will be conveyed to the public in the usual manner. In the meantime, we will continue to study the situation carefully and cooperate with other stakeholders in the battle against COVID-19.”
