INEC RELEASES GENERAL ELECTION DATES FOR NEXT 36 YEARS

The Independent National Electoral Commission has announced the dates of elections for the next 36 years.

The Chairman of INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, released the timetable for elections from 2019 to 2055 during a meeting with the chairmen of political parties in Abuja yesterday.

According to INEC’s arrangement, the general elections from 2019 to 2055 will hold on two days respectively as opposed to the proposal of the National Assembly which holds on three days with the following sequence: National Assembly (day one) governorship and state House of Assembly (day two) and presidential (day three)

Yakubu said in other developed democracies, the dates for elections were fixed.

He, therefore, stated that it was time for Nigeria to follow suit.
