The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has reached an agreement to postpone the March 11 governorship and state house of assembly elections.
The elections have been pushed back one week to March 18, 2023, according to credible commission sources.
It was learned that the postponement was caused by the commission’s inability to begin reconfiguring the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) machines used in the February 25 presidential and National Assembly elections to allow them to be used in the state elections.
According to reliable sources, the commission management is currently meeting and is debating whether to hold the elections on March 18 or March 25.
However, it was discovered that March 18 had been chosen.
“You know that the BVAS re-configuration would take three or four days and since they would all be moved to the headquarters in Abuja, the machines would be re-configured and deployed to the various states and finally to the polling units,” one of the officials said.
