INEC: 2023 Presidential, National Assembly elections to hold February 25


The Presidential election and National Assembly elections are to hold on February 25, 2023.
Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu
announced this on Saturday while briefing journalists in Abuja.
He added that governorship and state houses of assembly polls will take place on March 11, 2023.
INEC had earlier scheduled the Presidential election for February 18, 2023.
However the INEC Chairman said the rescheduling of the elections to February 25, 2023, was as a result of the late signing of the Electoral Act by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Yakubu explained that the new date is to allow for conformity with the provisions of the Electoral Laws which stipulates that election notice must be published at least 260 days to the elections
He added that the electoral guidelines will also be published in due course.
The new Act states that INEC must publish the notice of election at least 360 days to the polls.
