Why we are yet to react to proposal to postpone Edo election — INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission has said it would only react to a proposal by the Nigeria Police and the State Security Service calling for the postponement of the Edo governorship election after a meeting of its top officials in Benin.

Nick Dazang, a spokesperson for the commission said top officials of the electoral body were busy all day at a stakeholders meeting held in Benin, the Edo State capital, with major players in the election.

"It was after we came out of the stakeholders meeting that we became aware of the proposal to move the election," Mr. Dazang said. "So the commission simply went into the meeting immediately at the same venue where the stakeholders meeting held.

"It is only after that meeting that we will react."
