Less than 12 days to the general election, the Independent National Electoral Commission has said that election will not hold in 240 polling units.
The INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu stated this at a meeting with leaders of political parties on Monday.
Yakubu stated nobody chose to vote in these polling units.
Recall The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had in November 2022, disclosed that 242 polling units with 142,261 registered voters in 10 Local Government Areas of Katsina State were under serious security threat.
The Commission’s Head of the Department of Electoral Operation in the state, Husseni Jaafar, who revealed this at a stakeholders meeting had revealed that the polling units may be affected in the forthcoming general elections due to insecurity.
However, in its fresh meeting with political parties and other stakeholders with less than 12 days to the general election, INEC has formally confirmed that elections will not hold in 240 polling units.
