INEC chairman announces date for forthcoming elections in 2023

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, has finally announced the date for the forthcoming elections, which will take place in 2023.



Professor Yakubu made the announcement  during a one-day public hearing on the National Electoral Offences Commission (Establishment) Bill 2021, organised by the Senate Committee on INEC on Wednesday April 28.

In his words, he says:

"By the principle established by the Commission, the 2023 General Elections will hold on Saturday, 18th February, 2023, which is exactly one year, nine months, two weeks and six days or 660 days from today.
We hope to release the timetable and schedule of activities for the general elections immediately after the Anambra Governorship election scheduled to hold on 6th November, 2021.
In order to do so, there should be clarity and certainty about the electoral legal framework to govern the election. We are confident that the National Assembly will do the needful in earnest."
