After a closed door meeting with a national commissioner and two resident electoral commissioners, late on Wednesday, the resident electoral commissioner of Edo, Sam Olumekun, said that the results of the Edo state governorship election will be announced later on Thursday by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The News Agency of Nigeria reported that Olumekun did not give reasons for the shift in date of the exercise, but that it could be as a result of the late arrival of results from the 18 local government areas of the state as some materials started arriving some minutes past 12:am on Wednesday.
Many journalists, party agents, and election observers were late last night stranded at INEC office as a result of the last minute decision by the electoral body.
While some of the reporters who had earlier been barred from the collation center slept under the canopy, where the exercise will be relayed through a projector, some observers and agents were stuck at the venue of the collation.
Most of the television reporters left INEC office, probably after getting wind of the new development.PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> How I Made Me =N=2.5 MILLION In 7 Days from 2 Common Product I Imported and how you can do the same.
