INEC SCHEDULES 2019 GENERAL ELECTIONS FOR SATURDAY 16TH FEBRUARY AND SATURDAY 2ND MARCH 2019



The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has scheduled the 2019 Presidential and National Assembly elections for Saturday, 16th February, while the Governorship and State Assembly/Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Council elections have been scheduled for Saturday, 2nd March 2019.

This was disclosed yesterday by the Chairman of the Information and Voter Education Committee (IVEC), Prince Solomon Soyebi, at a press briefing held at the Commission’s Headquarters, Abuja.

Prince Soyebi pointed out that the Commission believed that there should be certainty with regards to the timetable for elections as obtained in other countries with advanced democracies. Said he: “in order to ensure certainty in our dates for Political Parties, Security Agencies, candidates and all stakeholders, the Commission has decided to fix the date for the National Elections for the third Saturday in February of the election year, followed by State elections two weeks later”.

He continued: “to that extent, the 2019 Presidential and National Assembly Elections will hold on Saturday, 16th February 2019, while the Governorship/State Assembly/Federal Capital Territory Area Council Elections will hold on Saturday 2nd March 2019”.
