No plan to postpone 2019 election – INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has restated that there is no plan to postpone the 2019 general election.

The commission made this known in a press release by the chief press secretary of the chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi. 

"Our attention has been drawn to a story with the headline – We May Shift 2019 Polls Over Threat Of Violence – INEC which appeared on the front page of a national newspaper today, but which did not correctly reflect what the Independent National Electoral Commission Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu said at the meeting.

"It is thus clear that at no point during his remarks did the INEC Chairman allude to the notion that the Commission "may shift 2019 polls over threat of violence" as reported by the national newspaper. To be sure, INEC has no plan to postpone the 2019 General Elections."
