INEC postpones Edo poll to September 28

The Independent National Electoral Commission on Thursday postponed the Edo State 2016 Governorship Election to Wednesday, September 28.

The decision was announced to journalists on Thursday night, about eight hours after the commission had insisted that the election would hold as scheduled on Saturday, September 10, despite warnings from security agencies.

But the leadership of the main opposition party in the country, the Peoples Democratic Party, led by Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has reiterated its earlier position that the Saturday, September 10, election date should remain sacrosanct.
